Goodbye Informaworld. Hello Taylor & Francis Online

Today saw the launch of Taylor & Francis Online, the replacement for the much unloved Informaworld platform. T&F have set up redirects, and we have configured EZproxy to work with the new site, so clicking on our existing links for T&F journals, either from the Library Catalogue or from SFX / find it @ liverpool should take you to the journal on the new site (though you will probably have to navigate your way from there to the actual article you want).

Over the next few days we will update our links to go straight to the new site, and as the knowledge base behind SFX gets updated we will once again be able to provide direct article-level linking to T&F journals.

The Taylor & Francis Online platform will in the future be the home for T&F eBooks too, but we're not expecting those to go live until 2012.

The new site is powered by Atypon's Literatum software which powers many other publishers' sites, including Annual Reviews and the New England Journal of Medicine, so we're expecting this site to  be much more reliable than Informaworld was.
