Updates to BHL exports now include LCSH and all pages

Following user requests, the BHL exports now include Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH) and metadata for all pages in the BHL collection.

The updated documentation, including URLs to files and database schema, is available at:
http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/data/BHLExportSchema.pdf

For a more lengthy description of motivation for these exports and plans for future services, please read Export of titles & scientific names in BHL now available for download.
