A Revised Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts 
directories. This draft is a work item of the Uniform Resource Identifiers 
Working Group of the IETF.                                                 

Note: This revision reflects comments received during the last call period.

       Title     : Uniform Resource Locators for Z39.50                    
       Author(s) : R. Denenberg, J. Kunze, D. Lynch
       Filename  : draft-ietf-uri-url-irp-05.txt
       Pages     : 4

Z39.50 is an information retrieval protocol that does not fit neatly into a
retrieval model designed primarily around the stateless fetch of data.  
Instead, it models a general user inquiry as a session-oriented, multi-step
task, any step of which may be suspended temporarily while the server 
requests additional parameters from the client before continuing.  Some, 
none, or all of these client/server interactions may require participation 
of the client user, depending only on the client software (the protocol 
itself makes no such requirements).

Send a message to:  mailserv@ds.internic.net. In the body type: 
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-uri-url-irp-05.txt".
NOTE: The mail server at ds.internic.net can return the document in
      MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
      feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
      command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
      a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
      exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
      "multipart" MIME messages (i.e., documents which have been split
      up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
      how to manipulate these messages.
For questions, please mail to Internet-Drafts@cnri.reston.va.us.

Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader 
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version
of the Internet-Draft.
