Lynda.com, a database of training courses available for access to Library patrons, is transitioning to LinkedIn Learning.
Lynda.com users will see a new look when they log on as of Monday, March 15 – and thousands of additional courses.
The resource offers trainings in everything from computer coding to photography to time management and more.
LinkedIn Learning has access to more than 16,000 courses in 7 languages, created by expert instructors, with new courses added regularly. With Lynda.com, patrons had access to 7,000 courses in English.
With the transition, patrons will have access to courses in English, French, German, Japanese, Spanish, Mandarin, and Portuguese.
Find LinkedIn Learning on the Library’s website by clicking on “Resources & Services” and scrolling down. You will need your Library card number and PIN to log in to the database.
Patrons who were already using Lynda.com should find their account and patron history has migrated over to the new system.
Though this service is provided through LinkedIn, patrons do not need a LinkedIn.com account to access LinkedIn Learning. If they do have a LinkedIn.com account, courses completed on LinkedIn Learning through the Library will not appear on their LinkedIn.com account.
