Librarians, Educators, & Administrators,

The Pioneer Library Consortium recently released a Request For Proposal
(RFP) in an effort to find the best electronic library resources for
Utah's teachers and students. Eleven companies sent in a proposal.

Please note that the following Pioneer Products may or may not be
renewed next school year depending on the outcome of this RFP process.

    * EBSCO
    * SIRS
    * Wilson Biographies

>From now until Tuesday, April 27th, you have the opportunity to
test-drive all of these products. It is important that after you take a
product for a test-drive that you complete the online survey. To access
these trials, go to: http://pioneer.uen.org and click on the link under
the heading "Pioneer Trial Opportunity." Some of the products will
require a username and password, others will not. Feel free to forward
this e-mail to the faculty at your school or school district.

I will be out of the office beginning Friday, April 2, and will return
on Monday, April 12. If you have any technical issues with accessing any
of the products or completing the survey, please contact Karen Krier at
kkrier@uen.org.

- Rick
