Access Lynda.com On the Go

Submitted by on – No Comment

lyndaLibrary staff members are sometimes available to share what we know about various computer programs, but we don’t know everything and we’re not experts. lynda.com is a new and growing online instructional learning site that helps anyone with software and online technology, through courses taught by recognized industry experts, in areas including but not limited to business, design, education, and web development. All Marlboro Free Library cardholders can use the lynda.com video library for free and from anywhere with internet access.

To access Marlboro Free Library’s account, please enter your 14-digit MFL card barcode and pin here.  (Where the access page is linked. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THE APP).

(Please note that you can only access course content through MFL’s lynda.com login page, and not by directly visiting the lynda.com homepage. Since this subscription only works for five patrons at a time, please log off your lynda.com account when you have finished your session as a courtesy to others trying to access the tutorials. Also note that while the MFL’s lynda.com accounts are accessible on mobile devices, they are not accessible on lynda.com apps. Use your mobile device’s browser.)

Once you have logged into lynda.com with your library barcode please create a personalized lynda.com account by entering your name and e-mail address in order to manage your course history, playlists, bookmarks, and Certificates of Completion.
