Academic publishers generally do not sell case studies to libraries, so it is necessary to purchase them online directly from the publisher. Prices vary among publishers, but typically they're under $10.00 US. Note that it may be cheaper to purchase a study directly from the original publisher than from another publisher. For example, an Ivey Publication that costs C$3.40 through their site is US$8.95 on the Harvard Business Review site.
