Hello,  I received an announcement from Taylor and Francis in
December:  Here is the relevant text:

>The Haworth Press site will run in tandem with informaworld until
>30th March 2009, after which date the Haworth Press site will be closed.
>In order to minimise user disruption we plan to grace access to all
>Haworth Press content on informaworld between now and 22nd January.
>This will ensure that user access is not disrupted during this
>initial period, as well as giving an opportunity to check that your

>Online Access
>The Haworth Press licence currently allows access to purchased

>to 1997, where digitised. Access to previous content will be made

Hope this help.  Diane
