Recently Lynda.com announced a policy change that would require all Lynda.com users to create LinkedIn accounts. This new policy runs counter to our belief in preserving patron privacy so we have discontinued our subscription to Lynda.com. We apologize to those of you that regularly use Lynda.com. We are actively researching alternatives that prioritize privacy.
Until we find a solution, we’re suggesting GCFLearnFree.com’s free online training courses for technology and workplace skills, a program of Goodwill Community Foundation and Goodwill Industries.
For more information on Lynda.com and library patron privacy, this article from the American Library Association’s Intellectual Freedom Blog has plenty of details.
