LinkedIn Learning – new courses added to Library OneSearch

LinkedIn Learning

FOLLOWING A COMPREHENSIVE review of the LinkedIn Learning content in Library OneSearch, more than 8,200 individual current course records are now discoverable in both LOS and LOS Pro.

All legacy Lynda.com records have been migrated to the LinkedIn Learning equivalents, and updated with all current metadata and linking syntax; withdrawn (and superseded) courses have been removed; and thousands of new LinkedIn Learning courses added.

All Lynda.com content on Resource Lists in the RLMS has also been updated with the current LinkedIn Learning content equivalent.

While the previous Lynda.com web links automatically redirected to the LinkedIn Learning platform (ensuring that access has remain uninterrupted), new arrangements now in place will ensure that course content discoverable in Library OneSearch will align with evolving LinkedIn Learning provision in the future.

Course content discoverable in LOS includes the following examples:

THE LINKEDIN LEARNING technical team have now resolved the earlier access issues and the site is available again.

LinkedIn Learning apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Access to the LinkedIn Learning platform now active

FOLLOWING THE MIGRATION from the Lynda.com to the LinkedIn Learning platform earlier this week, students and staff can access all content they previously viewed on Lynda.com through LinkedIn Learning.

Access to the service is by university username and password from on-campus and off-campus.

A new entry for LinkedIn Learning has been enabled in the library’s Find Databases service. While staff and students become familiar with the transition, the previous Find Databases listing for Lynda.com has been retained, and updated to indicate that the service is now known as LinkedIn Learning.

In due course, the listing for Lynda.com will be removed from the Find Databases service, but at present the access route provided by both listings is identical.

Library OneSearch contains several thousand records for individual Lynda.com courses. At present, links in these records redirect to the LinkedIn Learning platform. In the event of encountering any access issues when connecting to Linked In Learning from these records, the library recommends first logging in to Linked In Learning (through the Find Databases service). The library will be working with LinkedIn Learning to update these records with persistent new direct LinkedIn Learning links.

In Library OneSearch and Library OneSearch Pro, a new ‘Recommended resource’ match has been added for LinkedIn Learning. It will appear at the top of a set of search results in response to a search for ‘LinkedIn’, ‘LinkedIn Learning’, ‘Linked In’, ‘Linked In Learning’, ‘Lynda’ and ‘Lynda.com’.
