Changing mating type

We want to change the mating type of some of our lab strains, without
changing the rest of the genotype. We have heard that this can be done
by transformation with the appropriate MAT locus. Has anyone done this
successfully? If so, could you send us clones of the MAT loci, along with
information on how to select for the transformants? 
Please reply to my e-mail address. Thanks in advance for your help.
