The lynda.com Online Training Library is a massive online training resource. Using their thousands of videos, members are able to learn -- self-paced and on-demand -- topics ranging from Excel and PowerPoint to Tumblr and CSS.  LibraryLinkNJ has purchased 30 licenses.  Every month, we’ll open registration for up to 30 people. You will be able to use your Lynda.com login for three weeks to learn from established trainers almost any technology or soft skills topic you can think of.

"I completed my first Lynda.com course and I am thrilled!!  The WordPress Essential Training was EXACTLY what I needed to bring my job to the next level.  I can’t vouch for other instructors, but Morten Rand-Hendriksen was fabulous – he described everything in detail, provided step-by-step instructions, illustrated the lesson, then reviewed.  This course has empowered me to do what I need to do for my job and I can’t wait to take my next Lynda.com course. Thanks so much – you guys are awesome!!"   Pat Bruder, Grants & Special Projects, Educational Information & Resource Center at South Jersey Technology Park.

How This Works and Registration Information

  • Lynda.com courses are made up of a series of workshop lessons.  Each workshop lesson is a 5 to 20 minutes long video.  A complete course can be made up of a number of lessons and can take several hours to complete. You can easily skip or repeat lessons by using the index for each class.
  • The lynda.com account is free of charge to all members of LibraryLinkNJ. To use the LibraryLinkNJ account at lynda.com, you must have a LibraryLinkNJ website User Account.  You need to log into your User Account to complete the online registration form. The connect to registration is at the bottom of this page.
  • Registration is open only on the second Tuesday and Wednesday combo of each month and is limited to 20 simultaneous users. 
  • Registation is a 2-step process.
    1. First you register with us.  During the day we batch and activate the access to lynda.com for registrants. 
    2. After we activate access, you will receive a message from lynda.com with further instructions on how to complete the process.
  • We urge members at medium-sized and large libraries to seek approval from their supervisors before registering.  Please coordinate and limit the number of registrations from your library each month.  We need to share the 30 licenses across our entire membership. This service is designed to complement individual staff training needs, not to replace multiple staff in your library all taking the same training at the same time. 
  • Currently, each month 30 registered users with activated accounts will have 3 weeks of 24/7 access to all the training resources available on lynda.com.  You may take as many courses as you like, whenever you like in the 3 week session.
  • The access to lynda.com is web-based. This means that the 3 weeks of 24/7 access is available from any computer, tablet or mobile device. 
  • You must have a current version of QuickTime or Windows Media Player installed on your computer.
  • When you complete an entire course, you have the option of printing out a certificate of completion.
  • Our Member Services staff person (Carol Fishwick: carol@librarylinknj.org, 732-752-7720) is the Account Administrator and will process registrations, activate lynda.com accounts, and send the account information to each registrant by email via the lynda.com system. 
  • Registrants must complete the setup of their activated account within 48 hours of receiving their "Welcome" email containing the instructions.  If they do not, their account will be deactivated and the access will be reassigned.  To ensure prompt delivery of email notifications,  please add mmus@lynda.com to your email Address Book or have your IT person add it to your email "White" list.
  • When the registration limit of 30 is filled, a limited waiting list is available.  Those who are on the waiting list will be eligible for enrollment and have their access activated in the next month's session.
  • Renewals can be requested by phone only and will be granted if there is no one on the waiting list.  

If you have any questions about registration and account or access information, please call Carol Fishwick at 732-752-7720.  Carol is responsible for the day-to-day administration of the program.  Please call and do not email Carol.  If Carol is not in the office, your email will not be answered in a timely way.  A phone call to the office should reach Carol or someone else who can help you.

If you have other questions about the lynda.com service, please contact our Assistant Director, Joanne Roukens at 732-752-7720.

REMINDER:  If you successfully registered for the current session, you may NOT re-register for the following month's session.  If you want to renew, you must call the office and be placed on a renewal list.  We need to share the licenses across the membership.

We welcome your feedback on all aspects of Lynda.com.
