Question from Henry D.
Can it be used in any library from then on? or is it specific to this library? For example let's say I want use lynda.com in some some random brooklyn library 5 days after the class is over. My question is would I be able to do so? (Sorry if i'm being annoying this just seems too good to be true).
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi, Henry! If you have a NY Public Library card you can use it anytime, anywhere. We are not certain if Brooklyn Public Library has a Lynda.com account but you can check with them if you are also interested in using it there. I hope this helps!
