Get free access to! (a How To guide)

Many people don’t know this, but you can gain access to a lot of information for free through the public library. One of those gems in New Orleans is free access to the full library of videos.

Here’s how to take advantage of it:

  1. If you don’t already have one, open an account at your local New Orleans Public Library.
  2. Once you’ve opened your account, register for an online account on their website.
  3. From the main library website, click on Search Our Databases. This will take you to the Louisiana Library Connection site.
  4. Enter your library card number and click the Log In button.
  5. On the left, under My Library’s Databases, click on
  6. You’ll be redirected to at this point.
  7. On Lynda, enter your library card number and your library card PIN (you created this during registration in Step 2 above.)

Tada! You can now browse all of the videos for free. It’s worth noting that this is the equivalent of a Basic account, so you won’t have access to Project Files.
