Common Questions & Concerns
Will I need a LinkedIn Profile to Access LinkedIn Learning?
No, you will only need your Library Card number and PIN to access all of the content.
When I finish a course, can I download a certificate with my name on it?
Unfortunately, since LinkedIn Learning doesn't capture any personally identifiable information (PII) from your library account, they are unable to include names on certificates of completion.
