Description:

Lynda.com is a leading online learning platform that helps anyone learn business, software, technology and creative skills to achieve personal and professional goals. Through individual, corporate, academic, government and library subscriptions, members have access to the Lynda.com video library of engaging, top-quality courses taught by recognized industry experts. 
For 20 years, Lynda.com has helped students, leaders, IT and design pros, project managers—anyone in any role—develop software, creative, and business skills. Now part of LinkedIn, Lynda.com serves organizations of all sizes globally.

In 2021, the Lynda.com platform is planning to migrate to LinkedIn Learning. For public libraries, LinkedIn profiles will not be required (or even optional) for library patrons, as we will continue to use library card # and PIN as the sign-in protocol.
