All SCRLC members may now have access to lynda.com, an online subscription library that teaches the latest software tools and skills through instructional videos. Here is a 1 minute video About the Service explaining Lynda.com.
You can access the lynda.com library 24/7—even from your mobile device—and watch an entire course or single tutorial video as you need them. New courses are added each week.
If you would like access to the lynda.com library, please send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org, including your phone number and library’s name. You can take as many courses as you like during your two-week access period. We have a limited number of licenses available, so registration will be rotated on a first-come, first-served basis. We will maintain a waiting list and you can renew unless someone is on the waiting list.
There is also a mobile app for lynda.com that works with the Chromecast and Apple TV (so you can stream the videos to your tv) and you can switch to an audio-only mode so you can shut off the screen and just listen while driving. Jaclyn McKewan, at the Western New York Library Council created a YouTube video about this option.
Not only can you register easily online for SCRLC events, but you can enter all your professional development information (no matter where you take it) in one place- accessible whenever and wherever you need it and password protected.
Since 2010, NYS public librarian certificate holders must take 60 hours of professional development over 5 years for re-certification. SCRLC workshops, webinars, and conferences qualify to help you meet that requirement. My CE will also help you keep track of continuing education for easy access when performance evaluation or resume writing time arrives.
