    Username, Password, Name (can be your name).etc
    8.IMPORTANT: IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO :white_check_mark: TICK the box under I Live In Queensland IF YOU FORGOT THIS, YOU won’t BE ABLE TO CREATE THE ACCOUNT. ( That’s what I have found )*

  1. On Residential Address Search: Make sure when you enter the address from the random address generator site, it should automatically show some random address through the dropdown.

    CHOOSE ANY ADDRESS from the list.
  2. on the Email ID section: ENTER YOUR EMAIL ID, avoid using a randomly generated one if you do not want to lose the random email ID, it’s better to use your own email ID here.
  3. Click on Submit.

  1. You’ll receive an email and a confirmation message on the next page, saying that your account is created in Queensland library blah blah blah.
  2. Now visit this link:
    https://www.slq.qld.gov.au/research-collections/information-collections/eresources/lyndacom#offsite-new
    Scroll down and click on OFFSITE AND NEW TO LYNDA.COM and follow the steps given on it.

  1. After following all steps correctly, you’ll able to create the Lynda account.
  2. Now Once you successfully create the account, you don’t have to use the State Library link to log into your account, Just directly go to Lynda.com and log in by entering your email ID and Password.

That’s the TWIST! :wink: CONGRATULATIONS YOU HAVE 2 YEAR VALID FREE LYNDA ACCOUNT. :slight_smile:
