Lynda.com (now LinkedIn Learning) is a subscription service that helps anyone learn software, technology, business and creative skills via self-paced, online tutorials. While Purchase College does not have a subscription to LinkedIn Learning, all students, faculty, and staff who work or attend school at Purchase College have access to all of LinkedIn Learning's resources via the Westchester Library System. The first step is getting a Westchester Library System card.   

Students, faculty, and staff who live or work at Purchase College can get a WLS library card by visiting either Purchase Free Library or Harrison Public Library. Students, Faculty, and Staff with a Purchase College mailing address can apply for a WLS card online.

If not applying online, you must visit the Westchester public library of your choosing in-person and bring the proper documentation to obtain a Library card. 

Once you have a library card, please access LinkedIn Learning via this URL.

How do I reset my LinkedIn Learning password?

WLS librarians handle account problems and login issues. According to the WLS website: If you need to reset your password, please call Lynda/LinkedIn Learning at 1-888-335-9632. Select option 1 and specify that you are calling regarding Lynda Library.

How do I find my WLS Library Card Number and PIN?

The WLS Library Card number is typically found below the barcode on your card. Your PIN is set by you. If it's your first time logging into your WLS account, use the last 4 digits of your phone number. To reset a PIN or recover a lost library card number, please contact Harrison Public Library, Purchase Free Library, or your local Westchester Public Library branch.

All questions about your WLS library card and account should be directed to your Westchester Public Library branch, not to Purchase College Library.
