LinkedIn Learning (Formerly Lynda.com) Discontinued

Recently, we were made aware that LyndaLibrary has transitioned to LinkedIn Learning. As part of that migration, users will be required to create or connect a LinkedIn profile. Library users would have their full name publicly searchable on Google and the LinkedIn platform. This requirement violates the American Library Association’s (ALA) Code of Ethics and the Library Bill of Rights

Upon hearing of this, we have decided to discontinue service immediately and begin looking for a replacement. We are committed to ensuring our patrons privacy and safety within our walls or when accessing library resources online.
