Michael, we’d be interested to track down the instability you are seeing, so maybe can you contact me offlist to do some testing, or let me know when you had it so we can check our logs?

Are you having trouble only with the large Names files, or all files?

We are in the early stages of moving some of our infrastructure, so that may improve things for you, but we do not have a mirror site for the downloads, nor via GLOBUS.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

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!

- Michael
