Our metadata distribution service, CDS, has just produced an annual export of Names and Subjects in MARC , so I will be processing them for ID soon.
We appreciate your interest!
Thanks,

Nate

Subject: [CODE4LIB] id.loc.gov downloads: freshness?

Does anyone happen to know how often LC's bulk downloads are generated? 
The date currently displayed on the downloads page[1] for each file is
'27 Oct 2014', but it looks like the names[2] and subjects[3] SKOS nt files, at least, haven't actually been touched since March 2014.

Thanks,
Peter
