Rodman Public Library is offering a new database to its patrons, Lynda.com, that allows library cardholders free access to online educational courses. This database is being provided by the State of Ohio for Ohio libraries.
Now owned by LinkedIn, Lynda.com has been the leading provider of online learning content for 20 years. The service has more than 12,000 courses, ranging from computer programming to project management including instruction on various computer software, programming languages, and business topics. The video courses are taught by industry experts and are designed for any skill level. Lynda.com also offers more than 50 different learning paths to help users stay ahead in their current job or change careers.
“It's free to patrons, so if you have an account with us all you need is your library card number,” said Eric Taggart, Director, Rodman Public Library. “You can access Lynda.com inside or outside the library, from any device with an internet connection.”
