Lynda.com for Libraries

What is Lynda.com for libraries?

Lynda.com for libraries is actually one of a number of group subscription plans (that we mentioned in our How Much Does Lynda.com Cost article) available to multi-user clients of Lynda.com, including businesses, schools, and nonprofit organizations.  It allows libraries to pay a flat subscription fee in order to allow any number of their patrons to access Lynda.com through the library for free.

What features do I get with Lynda.com for libraries?

  • You can manage who can access Lynda.com through your library by way of a library card ID system or similar setup.

  • Patrons can access Lynda.com through your library whether they're at the library itself or not.  All that they need is an Internet connection.

  • Patrons can watch as many Lynda.com tutorial videos as they want, as many times as they want.
