Use case diagram for Web Services

We're currently modeling a set of web services in UML. I was wondering if anyone has a good example of a use case diagram for web services (or can point me to one).

I'm not sure that you need any web services specific notation on the use case diagram level. Text-based/goal-oriented use cases tend to be more useful anyway (see: Use Cases) and no special notation is required. Example: Web service use case: Travel reservation

However you may find these useful:
UML 2.0 Profile for Software Services
SOA Principles Poster
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
