This comes from Serials Solutions Support Center. It is dated 11/18/2008

Haworth Press was recently acquired by Informa. All content currently hosted on will be moving over to and all new content will be published on Informaworld only as of January 2009. Content will be hosted in tandem on and through March 2009. After that date, access will end and clients will only have access through Informaworld. For more information about how to obtain access through Informaworld and other details, please see Informa's update on the transition.

Serials Solutions receives updated title-level metadata directly from Informaworld. We will receive the new links for Haworth Press titles shortly after they are loaded on Informaworld and will make these available to select in the Client Center as soon as possible afterward in the databases "Informaworld" and "InformaWorld Current Subscriptions (1997 - present)". Libraries that already have one of these databases selected simply need to select the appropriate Haworth Press titles that they have subscribed to. Libraries that have not previously selected any Informaworld resources through the Client Center will need to select the appropriate titles in one of the databases above.

In either case, libraries should deselect the Haworth Press-hosted databases, such as "Haworth Press Journals" or the databases beginning with "Haworth Core Collection" no later than March 2009, as content will no longer be available.

In addition to the A-Z lists that Informa supplies Serials Solutions, as of 2009, Haworth Press titles will be included in the various Taylor & Francis journal packages. We will load these as soon as possible after the New Year to reflect the new content available from Haworth Press and other titles that have been added to the packages for 2009.
