Extending REQUEST to CDL-mounted journal-article databases is planned to debut with the January 2000 release of the CDL Directory.  Testing of the service and its interface by PIR liaisons will commence this week.  Outreach materials, which can be adapted to explain and promote the service, will be updated and made available later this month.  Readers are reminded to check [http://www.cdlib.org/libstaff/sharedcoll/projects/pir/] for more information.
