Re: Taylor & Francis Group and Haworth Press Ken Siegert 19 Dec 2007 16:12 UTC

Hi Jennifer,

Does this mean that the Haworth titles will still be offered as print
w/free online in 2008?  Or only after the transition to T&F?

Just prior to the announcement that T&F was buying Haworth, we
received notice from EBSCO that online access would no longer be free
with our Haworth print subscriptions.  In preparation of the up-
charge, I just deleted our URLs for our 4 Haworth titles.

Thanks,

Ken
