Many states have laws in place to protect the privacy of libraries. But LinkedIn is violating this with LinkedIn Learning, formerly known as Lynda.com.
Currently, when Lynda.com is accessed through a library, a user logs in with her or his library card and a PIN. No other personal information is required.
Checking off the user agreement grants LinkedIn the power to share the information contained in a personal profile with whoever LinkedIn wants.
Libraries are a bastion against corporations, where you can get free resources and just hang out without having to buy anything. I hope this gets resolved in the library’s favor.
