CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: The library is closed effective Tuesday, March 24th. Continuing services will include: access to online materials; reference, class or research consultations; and assistance with securing expanded online access to curriculum-based and/or research materials. For more information see the Georgetown Libraries COVID-19 Updates and Resources page and the Library's COVID-19 FAQ.
The Library provides all Georgetown faculty, students, and staff unlimited access to LinkedIn Learning (formerly Lynda.com), a collection of high-quality video tutorials where you can learn the latest software tools and professional skills with over 16,000 courses on business, creative, and technology topics.

"LinkedIn Learning gives the Georgetown Community free access to some of the best teaching modules available. I frequently refer students to it as a way to get new skills and update old ones."

"LinkedIn Learning has a huge library of courses. I used it to brush up on Excel before my first job, to learn video editing techniques for my hobby, and to practice for a certification test as a grad student. It's just a great resource!"

"As a graduating senior, I found LinkedIn Learning to help enhance my resume and add skills that I would not otherwise easily have the opportunity to learn."
Additionally, every user has control over their privacy and the information they choose to share on their LinkedIn Profile. This can be reviewed, and updated via Setting and Privacy on their LinkedIn Profile Page.
The Georgetown University Library's licensing agreement with LinkedIn Learning specifies that only current faculty, students, and staff are able to access the system. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are pleased to announce that access to LinkedIn Learning for students graduating in Spring 2020 has been extended through mid-August to assist with their professional development and career planning.
Many public library systems, like the DC Public Library and Arlington County Public Library, provide their residents with free access to Lynda.com and LinkedIn Learning. We recommend visiting your public library's website to see what type of online learning resources they provide.
