  • All LinkedIn Learning courses are eligible for LEUs provided they last longer than 30 minutes. For ease of getting started, the Indiana State Library has several playlists below listing courses that may be relevant to librarians, but you are no longer limited to taking courses that are on our playlists. Just verify that the course is longer than 30 minutes.
  • If a course deals with how to use computer software, hardware, an electronic device, mobile apps, or social media the course is eligible for Technology LEUs (TLEUs). All other courses are eligible for general LEUs.
