Online learning is getting even easier at DaytonMetroLibrary.org! The Library is upgrading its Lynda.com account to LinkedIn Learning to provide highly personalized online learning – free! LinkedIn Learning offers video tutorials and courses in software, creative, and business skills, taught by industry experts.

LinkedIn Learning users can:

“Patrons who have been using our Lynda.com platform will see all their progress and playlists carry into the new LinkedIn Learning,” said Holly Varley, Manager of Collection Development. “All of their learning history and certificates will appear on their new account as a part of the upgrade, and they will continue to be able to watch all the same content, bookmark courses, and obtain certificates of completion.”

To access LinkedIn Learning, users need a Dayton Metro Library card and PIN/password.
