The library has added 3 lynda.com kiosk stations to the John T. Richardson and Loop Library that are available to current DePaul students, faculty and staff.  These kiosk stations provide access to the full catalog of lynda.com tutorials, an online subscription library that teaches the latest software, creative and business skills through high-quality instructional videos.  Lynda.com offers users the ability to learn new technology and software and stay current with updates and new releases through video tutorials and exercise files that users can download and work through along with the tutorial, or on their own.  With more than 2000 courses taught by industry experts, and over 100,000 available videos, lynda.com is designed for all levels of learners.
