Lynda

Shelter Rock Public Library is pleased to offer its cardholders access to lynda.com's library of instructional video. Normally, using lynda.com requires a paid subscription, but as a SRPL library cardholder you can access Lynda.com content from any computer with an Internet connection simply by entering your 14-digit SRPL library card barcode and 4-digit pin. 

(Please note that you can only access course content through the SRPL's lynda.com login page, and not by directly visiting the lynda.com homepage. Bookmark accordingly. Please also note that while the SRPL's lynda.com accounts are accessible through mobile devices, they are not accessible through lynda.com apps. Use your mobil device's browser.)

Once you have logged into lynda.com with your library barcode, you must create a personalized lynda.com account by entering your name and email address. This account can help you manage your course history, playlists, bookmarks and Certificates of Completion. Many courses also featured exercise files, so that if you're watching a tutorial about Microsoft Excel, you can follow the activity with downloadable pre-populated Excel files.

What is lynda.com?

lynda.com is an online learning site that hosts a constantly growing library of over 3000 courses that include over 130,000 videos. Courses cover a variety of topics (including business, design, web development and multimedia skills) and software (Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Suite and open source applications) that can help you pursue personal and professional goals. These courses are delivered by expert instructors and feature searchable transcripts that make it easy to find quick answers to questions.
