PLSJ Offers Free Access to Online Educational Courses
 
PLSJ is now offering cardholders free access to online educational courses from Lynda.com thanks to OPLIN (Ohio Public Library Information Network) and LinkedIn.
 
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.
