Use this calendar to reserve a Lynda Pro license for one-day remote access through Penn Libraries for current Penn students, faculty and staff. In addition, many schools and centers provide unlimited pennkey-based access to Lynda. Please note that Lynda Pro access is not available for alumni. 

How to reserve: Lynda licenses can be reserved from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm, seven days a week.* Reservations are accepted at most 7 days ahead of time. First-time users receive login instructions via email. When first logging in, please complete the registration process; this will allow you to access in the future. Please do not share your Lynda account credentials with others.

Note: We use LibCal to handle both room reservations and Lynda Pro licenses. If you book a Lynda license first and then try to book a room for the same day, LibCal will give an error message saying that you cannot reserve two rooms at the same time. If this happens, please cancel your Lynda reservation and make your room reservation, then email us with your Lynda request.
