« Changes to VIAF | Main | New PURL server »

I know it's possible to get individual records from VIAF in 'linked data' style.

Is it possible to download a bulk copy (OAI-PMH?) of all records, if I want to do some analysis/processing across that corpus that's going to have performance problems accessing records one at a time over http?

It would be awesome if there was a way to do a bulk-download that somehow preserved the 'authority groups' you've created from different files, but I'm not even sure what that would look like. One step at a time. But it would be REALLY useful.
