I noticed this on Friday, Jan 2nd. I have not been back to the site since.

We use Serials Solutions and I am able to track our Haworth titles though an Informaworld database.  The link currently shows as "free access".  I will follow up to make sure our access remains in place after March, but for now it allows patrons access and keeps them away from the Haworth site with the disconcerting 'this site may harm your computer' message.

Has anyone happened to Google any of the Haworth journals within the last couple of days?

I got a 'this site may harm your computer' message.  The diagnostic page says:

"Of the 1039 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 125 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time Google visited this site was on 2009-01-05, and the last time suspicious content was found on this site was on 2008-12-31."

This may be an innocent part of the changeover to T&F, but it's pretty scary for users.
