Setting Up Your New Lynda.com Account
- From the Library’s website, go to the Lynda.com login page.
- Log in using your library card number and library card PIN. Your PIN is the same password you use when checking out books at the Library.
- Choose "No, I’ve never had an account."
Choosing "Transfer My History" allows you to import your course history from existing Lynda.com accounts. Because different Lynda.com providers offer varying levels of account privileges, choosing this feature may result in reduced functionality on one (or both) of your Lynda.com accounts. To avoid this potential issue, it is recommended that you start a brand new profile using the Library's subscription.
Replacing your library card? At this time, Lynda.com is unable to transfer account information (course histories, playlists, certificates, etc.) from old library card account numbers to new ones. To avoid losing a record of your progress, be sure to download any Lynda.com Certificates of Completion as you earn them.
- Fill in your name and email address on the "Create a Profile" page. Save this information to complete the account setup process.
