Do I need to have a LinkedIn account to use LinkedIn Learning?

No, library users only need a library card number and PIN to access content.

How do I transfer from to LinkedIn Learning?

Nothing is required of you to make the transfer.

Your user history will move with you - it is tied to your library card. When the upgrade is complete, your user history will be in your new LinkedIn Learning for Library account under your existing library card number and PIN.

If you have been issued a new library card and PIN different from the one you had used to access, please note that your learning history won't transfer over.

What can I expect on the day of the transfer?

On the day of the scheduled upgrade (March 25, 2021), you won't be able to access your profile.

Once the upgrade is complete, you will see the link for LinkedIn Learning access in our listing at nvdpl/databases.

How do I access LinkedIn Learning for the first time?

Once the upgrade is complete (on or after March 26, 2021), you will be able to log into the new LinkedIn Learning platform.

  • Go to our website at
  • Scroll down and select LinkedIn Learning
  • Log in with your library card and PIN - this is the information that LinkedIn Learning will use to sync your learning history from

Please note that your learning history may not appear right away. Once you log into LinkedIn Learning, it will use your library card number to retrieve your history from, but it may take a day or two to finish transferring the data.

What should I know about privacy?

You will only be required to login with your library card number and PIN and will not be identified in any other way.

Without identifying you, LinkedIn Learning will make NVDPL's overall learning data available to NVDPL for reporting purposes at the aggregate level.

Is LinkedIn Learning connected to LinkedIn Social Media?

LinkedIn Learning is a separate platform from LinkedIn social media. You are not required to create or link a LinkedIn social media account in order to use LinkedIn Learning, nor will you be prompted to make a social media account when you first sign in.

If you do have a LinkedIn social media account, you can manually share your completed courses on your social media account via LinkedIn Learning, but sharing your course completions is not automatic. If you wish to post your course completions, make sure to add the email address you use on LinkedIn to your account on LinkedIn Learning so that the information can be shared. Also, please make sure to review the privacy and notification information for LinkedIn.
