First a qualifier... I haven't experimented with this plugin so I'm just guessing about what it's expected to do


If it's supposed to allow you to search LC's NAME authority file and then download records easily, instead of using the address OCLC suggests which goes to LC's Voyager catalog of authority records where you'll go through some hoops to download the record in MARC format, I suggest using:  http://id.loc.gov/ 

This site will allow you to search several different thesauri and download the results in a variety of formats including:  RDF/XML (MADS and SKOS), N-Triples (MADS and SKOS), JSON (MADS/RDF and SKOS/RDF), etc.

Of course, I'm not the one who has to program it, so whatever will work.

Is this site no longer being updated? It hasn’t had authority records in the database for at least the last two weeks. http://alcme.oclc.org/srw/search/lcnaf
