Learn how to search, save videos and set up a profile to get the most out of this free library resource in our workshop from July 2020. Some library services mentioned in the workshop (computer reservations, Adobe Creative Cloud) were specific to that time; see the library website for the most recent service updates. 

Sometimes LinkedIn Learning asks for the “Library ID” before you can log in with your library card number and PIN. The Library ID is planolibrary (all one word, no capitalization). Sometimes it has the URL mostly filled out, like in your photo below, if not here it is typed out: www.linkedin.com/learning-login/go/planolibrary
