Just in time for National Library Week, we are excited to announce the return of Lynda.com to patrons who live in the Marin County Free Library jurisdiction.
We terminated our subscription last Fall due to privacy concerns, after the company was acquired by LinkedIn, a subsidiary of Microsoft. After widespread concern about patron privacy and confidentiality was voiced by public libraries across the nation, LinkedIn has revised their terms of service for libraries, and a LinkedIn profile is no longer required for use of Lynda.com through libraries.
Access to the educational site includes over 8,000 courses in popular fields like web design, web development, IT, education/instruction, media production, and business. Experts create and deliver all courses as well as provide supplemental materials like exercise files and relevant work samples.
To access Lynda.com for free, you will need to use the Library’s link: www.marinlibrary.org/lynda, instead of visiting the Lynda.com homepage directly. You will also need your library card number and PIN/password.
As our community shelters at home, we are happy to be able to provide this opportunity for you to engage in learning and to hone your skill set for employment and personal goals.
