In March, Lynda.com has been upgraded to LinkedIn Learning. Users now have access to over 16,000 online courses, all available free with a library card. Classes are taught by real-world professionals covering the skills sought.
Over 50 new courses are added every week to provide the most relevant and current learning opportunities in the business, tech and creative industries.
From “Finance for Non-Financial Managers” to “The Practicing Photographer,” courses are available for a variety of areas of interest and ability levels.
To start developing your skills, go to Stillwaterlibrary.org and scroll to Digital Library. Click on Research & Online Courses and choose LinkedIn Learning from the A-Z list of research databases. A LinkedIn profile is not required to access this service. For former Lynda users, the entire learning history of Lynda.com automatically migrated to LinkedIn Learning.
