Have you caught up with Lynda yet? Lynda who? Lynda.com!

Lynda is an online learning program that brings you thousands of courses that are easy to follow and free with your library membership.

Frankston City Council Libraries is pleased to offer library members access to lynda.com's library of instructional videos. Normally, using lynda.com requires a paid subscription, but as a library cardholder you can access Lynda.com content from any computer with an Internet connection simply by entering your library card barcode number and your 4-digit PIN.

Please note that you can only access course content through the Frankston City Libraries lynda.com login page, and not by directly visiting the lynda.com homepage. Bookmark accordingly. Please also note that while the Frankston City Libraries lynda.com accounts are accessible through mobile devices, they are not accessible through lynda.com apps. Use your mobile device's browser.

Once you have logged into lynda.com with your library barcode you must create a personalized lynda.com account by entering your name and e-mail address. This account can help you manage your course history, playlists, bookmarks, and Certificates of Completion. Many courses also featured exercise files, so that if you're watching a tutorial about Microsoft Excel you can follow the activity with downloadable, pre-populated Excel spreadsheet files.
