[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Batch extraction of Agent records through the API

During some recent experimentation with the ArchivesSpace API, we found while that while you can use an array to remove multiple records for a DELETE request via the API, it seems like you can't use an array with a GET request to retrieve multiple records as JSON.  Has anyone found a method for extracting multiple records through the API?

The reason we're trying to do this is that we would like to download our Agent records and run them through an OpenRefine batch process to find potential VIAF identifiers based on the authorized name, review the VIAF identifiers for accuracy, and then push the VIAF labels and  identifiers back into the Agent records as alternate names.
