Currently  the only access point  for bulk download is from our website at http://id.loc.gov/download/. We don’t have mirrors or GLOBUS endpoint. We may consider those approaches in the future.

Subject: [ID.LOC.GOV] Bulk download mirrors?


Hopefully quick question - are there any mirrors of the bulk download files?


I find my connection to the download server to be quite unreliable. Increasing wget's retry limit helps, but it is still slow and cumbersome.


My institution is also on GLOBUS, if they are available on a GLOBUS endpoint somewhere. I was unable to find information about accessing LOC data via GLOBUS.


Thank you very much!
