For non-academic users:

Obtaining cases for non-academic use through CaseWorks is a two-step process: Licensing the cases through Copyright.com then requesting the case via email from CaseWorks.

Step 1: License the case through Copyright.com (CCC)

Requesting CaseWorks charges $7.00 per user/per case for cases used in non-academic programs and we license our cases through Copyright Clearance Center (www.copyright.com).  You must be registered through the Copyright.com website to order the case. Please create your account before placing the case into your cart.  Once you have logged in, you may find the publication by searching for the case title or ID number.

To order, select only one of the listed permission type ‘Photocopy for general business or academic use.’ and click on “Price and Order”. You will be asked to enter the following information: year of publication, page range, total number of pages, and number of attendees. Please make sure that the number of attendees is as accurate. The other items do not affect your order and you can always use 2014 for the publication year, 1-100 for page range, and 100 for total pages.   Once you have completed the payment information, CCC will send you a confirmation email including an order detail number.

Step 2: Email CaseWorks for the case file

Once you have your order confirmation from Copyright.com, please email CaseWorks the order detail number, facilitator(s) name(s), full name of the event and dates.  Final cases are delivered via email as a pdf that can be posted on a password protected site for attendees or printed out. The cases will be watermarked with the facilitator’s name, course, and the dates of the license period at the bottom of each page.
