  1. Hi,
    I am very pleased that these tutorials became available in the library. They are also available for viewing off-line as a new feature. I downloaded and installed the program from the Lynda site, but it requests a Lynda login, and the Wellington Library card login doesn’t work at this point. This is a NEW feature (it says that on the button) and maybe not incorporated yet in the Library access.
    Best regards,

  2. This has made my day! It reinforces to me how lucky we are to have such an awesome library in Wellington. Keep up the good work 🙂

  5. I tried to sign in but didn’t have a password and later looking around I was told there was a 10 day trial and then I have to pay. Confused. I initially signed in with me library card number then my name as a pin but after that was confused what to do.

  6. I applaud you WCL, what a fantastic resource! Thanks for the e-mail bringing to my attention.

  7. Hi Andrea, we have added a “how-to” guide to the post above with instructions on getting started with using your library card. Do let us know if this helps, or if it’s still not working for you! ^RL

  8. Thanks for this suggestion Andy! We’ve forwarded your suggestion on to our technical team to investigate what options they offer for library or organisational memberships. ^RL
