Lynda.com is now LinkedIn Learning for Library. Here’s what you need to know.

Lynda.com is now LinkedIn Learning for Library. Here’s what you need to know.

Lynda.com, an eResource with thousands of professional learning videos at the click of your keyboard, just became better. LinkedIn retired Lynda.com and replaced it with LinkedIn Learning for Library. The site continues to provide great skill-building content, but now it is a more personalized learning experience. LinkedIn Learning combines Lynda.com’s courses with LinkedIn’s customization to recommend courses based on your interests, occupation, and skills.

With your free Library card, you can access more than 16,000 self-paced courses in seven languages, hundreds of online resources to help reinforce new knowledge, and tutorials covering topics on business, technology, design, and more.

LinkedIn Learning for Library is available through our Digital Library portal.

What does this mean for Library members?

Library members will continue to have free access to the same great courses from Lynda.com, but the upgraded experience is more user-friendly. All the existing Lynda.com content, features, and functionalities are still available in LinkedIn Learning for Library. Your course history from Lynda.com transferred to your new LinkedIn Learning for Library account under your existing Library card number.

How can I access LinkedIn Learning for Library?

It’s in our Digital Library. Members can sign in to LinkedIn Learning for Library using their Library card number and PIN. A LinkedIn profile is not required to access the site’s content through the Library. If you don’t have a Library membership, you can sign up for a free account online and start using your card immediately.

What if I don’t remember my Library card number?

If you’ve forgotten your Library card number or PIN, call the Library Hotline for further support. Please note that if you are issued a new Library card or account, you will no longer have access to your course history. More information on LinkedIn Learning for Library can be found here.
