OCLC & Authority Records

From OCLC:
As a result of changes outside of OCLC's control that impact the authorities distribution
files, OCLC will not load new authorities files (names and subjects) until after the
first of the year.

This decision will have an impact on all OCLC users (Connexion and Z39.50) of the LC Names and Subject Authority Files:

The most recent distributed files loaded into OCLC systems from the Library of Congress were those dated 12/18. Any records currently in the distribution queue will remain in that state. Please note: No data will be lost.

OCLC has additional details.
