Message about Lynda.com

!

Lynda.com, now called Linkedin Learning, has formally discontinued service to libraries and is no longer available via the Woodbridge Public Library. Among other changes, the new service requires users to create a LinkedIn social media account and publicly displays on that account which courses the user has taken. These changes violate the Library’s commitment to insuring that patrons' use records are confidential.

The Woodbridge Public Library will continue offering other learning services, including Learning Express Library and Job and Career Accelerator, and is presently considering other services to offer in place of Lynda.com/LinkedIn Learning.

For more information on libraries' concerns with LinkedIn Learning, please see this article from the American Library Association's Office of Intellectual Freedom.
