Access Lynda.com with a New York Public Library Card

Lynda.com  is an online educational site that includes over 5,000 courses (and over 130,000 videos) in popular fields like web design, web development, IT, education/instruction, media production, and business. Experts create and deliver all courses as well as provide supplemental materials like exercise files and relevant work samples.  These courses allow anyone to achieve personal and professional goals.  Users will need to create accounts in order to track course progress, create playlists of potential coursework, and keep course notes.
This is a valuable subscription based resource that is available for free with your New York Library Card or your local library to access Lynda.com.

Please note that you can only access course content through the New York Public Library's Lynda.com login page, and not by directly visiting the Lynda.com homepage.

February 5 from 11 am-1 pm 
February 6 from 5-7pm
Location: O'Malley 5th floor entrance.
