Note about LinkedIn Learning Transition: Lynda.com's parent company LinkedIn is absorbing the content into a new platform called LinkedIn Learning. The library version, LinkedIn Learning for Library, will not be integrated with other LinkedIn features, and therefore will not require users to have a LinkedIn account. Ohio libraries will migrate to the new platform the first week in May and Huron Public Library will be moving to this platform on May 4. On the date of migration, neither Lynda.com nor LinkedIn Learning will be available for patrons.
Patrons will still have access to the same types of courses, though with LinkedIn Learning, courses will be updated more frequently and new courses will be consistently added each month. Courses will also be available in a variety of languages.
Patrons are advised to download certificates of completion before their Lynda accounts are migrated because names will be removed during the transition in order to protect patron privacy.
The Huron Public Library is pleased to offer its cardholders access to Lynda.com, a unique digital library of instructional videos. Normally, using Lynda.com requires a paid subscription, but as a Huron Public Library cardholder you can access Lynda.com content from any computer with an Internet connection simply by entering your library card number and PIN.
*Patrons can only access free course content through the Huron Public Library login page (above) and not by directly visiting the Lynda.com homepage, which would charge a subscription fee.
After creating an account, you can watch videos, create playlists, bookmark pages, and obtain Certificates of Completion. Many courses also feature exercise files that you can use to watch the tutorials and follow along.
If you need assistance using Lynda.com, please call the Library at (419) 433-5009 or send an email to McKenna, our Emerging Technology Librarian, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
