How to use the library catalog
The library catalog allows you to locate our books, DVDs, periodicals, and more. This is also where you can access your library account to renew or reserve items.
Searching the catalog is easy! Just type what you are looking for in the Search box and hit enter. Check to see if the library has it (displays “Held by Laguna College of Art & Design”), then note the status of availability, followed by the shelving location and call number. Search the catalog

HOW TO GET STARTED WITH LYNDA/LINKEDIN LEARNING
Activating Your LinkedIn Learning License Provided by Your Organization:
You will sign up for your LinkedIn Learning license during library orientation. Once you have signed up, you'll receive an email notification inviting you to activate your Learning access. Open the email and click the Activate LinkedIn Learning now button. You’ll be taken to LinkedIn Learning, where you can sign in using your LCAD email credentials as explained in the instructions below. You will also be given the option to link the Learning license provided by the LCAD Library to your own personal LinkedIn profile. By linking the license, you can access LinkedIn Learning directly from your personal LinkedIn account instead of using your LCAD email credentials.
If you need us to re-send your email invitation, please contact the library at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How to Log In to LinkedIn Learning
1. Go to the LinkedIn Learning home page at linkedin.com/learning/
2. Click Sign in. If you linked your Learning license to your personal LinkedIn profile, sign in with that account. If you opted out of linking your profile, proceed to step 3.
3. On the Sign in page, click Sign in with your organization account.
4. Enter your LCAD email address, then click Continue.
5. If your email isn’t recognized, contact library staff, otherwise proceed to login with your LCAD email and LinkedIn Learning password.
