Everyone who uses lynda.com needs to create a personal profile in the lynda system so that you can track your progress through courses, create playlists, take tests, and earn certificates of completion.
Your library card makes you a member!
From home: You will be prompted to enter your library card when you click on any links on this page. Inside the library: click on any of our lynda links (no card required).
Use the "Create your personal lyndaLibrary account" link below for direct access to the new user profile page.
Alternatively, while on the lyndaLibrary site, you can click the LOG IN link on any page, followed by "Create a profile".
You are now free to watch all of the content on lynda.com!
Return to the lyndaLibrary site via this library portal to continue your courses. Watch the recommended "How to Use lynda.com" videos for tips on how to make use of the site.
If you have had access to lynda.com in the past, visiting it through the Winnipeg Public Library link will allow you to reactivate your existing account, with all of your playlists and courses intact.
If you already have access through work or school, please continue to go straight to lynda.com or use your institutional link to lynda.com as the content is exactly the same.
If the page you are viewing asks you to "Start Your Free Trial Now" or says that you need to become a member to view all courses in the playlist, it is because you are not logged in.
Then use the "create a profile" button:
If you are a Winnipeg Public Library card holder, you can use lynda from any computer, tablet, or phone with an internet connection, whether you are inside a branch, at home, or traveling.
However, lynda.com's website is mobile friendly and the video content will work on any device (android, iOS, tablet, etc.).
NOTE: lynda.com may detect you are on a mobile device and offer to take you to get the app. Answer "maybe later" to this prompt.
