What you need to know about the Lynda.com upgrade to LinkedIn Learning for Library

State Library of Queensland is upgrading from Lynda.com to LinkedIn Learning for Library. Keep informed about the process.

Loss of service

State Library of Queensland is upgrading from Lynda.com to LinkedIn Learning for Library. From 4am May 25, 2021, State Library of Queensland will lose access to Lynda.com for a significant period. We are working with the vendor to restore access as soon as possible.

User accounts

Due to technical constraints outside of our control, it is not possible to migrate State Library of Queensland members’ Lynda.com accounts to the new LinkedIn Learning for Library. This means that after 24 May 2021 your Lynda.com account history will no longer be available. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. 

To preserve your learning history, we strongly recommend that you login to your Lynda.com account before 24 May 2021 and manually save your viewing history and certificates. You can save your viewing history by taking screenshots of the list of viewed courses and videos. You can save your certificates by clicking ‘View/Share’ and then saving them as PDFs.

If you maintain a current library membership with State Library of Queensland, you will be able to access LinkedIn Learning for Library once service is restored, but you will have to create a new LinkedIn Learning account.
