As far as I know there aren't any permalinks for name authority
records at loc.gov that use the LCCN. I've heard informally from some
folks at OCLC that they plan to redirect these links to a URL at
loc.gov if/when the name authority records are available from there.
But I have no idea when that will happen unfortunately.
