Thanks to an agreement between the Ohio Public Library Information Network (OPLIN) and LinkedIn, New Madison Public Library is joining Ohio's libraries in offering lynda.com free to our patrons.
Lynda is an online training service that offers thousands of online courses on everything from computer programming to project management including instruction on various computer software, programming languages, and business topics. All you need is your library card.
After logging in with the library barcode number from the back of your card, you must create a lynda.com account by entering your name and e-mail address. With this account, you can manage your course history, playlists, bookmarks, and Certificate of Completion.
Below are answers to some frequently asked questions about lynda.com. If you have any more questions or need assistance, we are a phone call away at (937) 996-1741
