Do you use Lynda.com through the library? From 9pm Monday 15 February, Lynda.com is upgrading to become LinkedIn Learning for Libraries, with all the content you love, plus more!
What changes can I expect?
- All of your favourite courses will still be available
- Users will have access to a library of over 16,000 courses in 7 different languages (English, French, German, Japanese, Spanish, Mandarin, and Portuguese)
- An updated, easier to use interface
- Your course history will move with you — it’s tied to your library card number
Why is the change happening?
LinkedIn acquired Lynda.com in 2015, and has slowly been transitioning the service and its feature to their own platform and brand.
Will there be an outage for the migration?
Yes, Lynda.com will be unavailable from 9pm Monday 15 February, and the changeover may take several hours.
Do I need to have a LinkedIn account to use LinkedIn Learning for Libraries?
No, you’ll still only need your library card number and PIN.
**UPDATE** We are aware some users are experiencing issues accessing LinkedIn Learning following the upgrade. We have contacted LinkedIn who are working on the problem.
