Libraries have always been the place that people come to learn things on their own. Whether it is a question about gardening or researching a new career, the library is the first destination. Most recently, patrons have discovered that library resources also can be accessed from a home computer. There are many books that can be borrowed through Overdrive (a library application) as well as a wide range of databases that can help you research a wide variety of subjects.
This year, Russell Library patrons also have the opportunity to learn on their own from home (or on one of the library’s computers) with our new source for online learning, Lynda.com.
You don’t have to take our word for it. PC Magazine’srecent review of lynda.com states,
The site is exceptional at teaching technical skills and technique, such as software for video editing, photography, programming, and even animation. Beyond multimedia training, lynda.com also helps people pick up business principles, money-management advice, and much more. When you need skills training fast, lynda.com is the go-to source for high quality results and a PCMag Editors' Choice.
If you need help accessing this source from your home computer, please call or visit the library!
