What is Lynda? Do I need to use it?

Lynda.com is an online learning platform that offers business, software, technology, and creative skills to achieve personal and professional goals. Through videos and downloadable exercises, industry experts provide engaging course instruction. Library cardholders have free and full access to the Lynda.com catalogue.  

The library subscription is the same as the individual Premium membership. Most course content can be downloaded for offline use with the Lynda.com app (see below).
