Item borrowing, renewing, returning

The order of items loan, renewal and return is regulated by the Rules of Vytautas Magnus University Library.

Items are borrowing:

University community members can borrow study literature (textbooks) – for semester, science literature and fiction – for 1/2 weeks and 1 month, depending on the rules of library department, where they are stored. Limit of science literature and fiction – 50 items. Textbook number is not limited. Only one copy of the same title a user can borrow. A single copy of science literature, published in recent 3 years, manuscripts, rare and old documents, habilitation works and dissertations, items of high demand are read only in Library.

The user himself takes requested documents; the exception shall apply for the disabled University community members — documents to them can be picked by the authorised person.

! Borrow the item yourself using any of the self-service machines located at V. Biržiška Library, L. Donskis Library, M. Romeris Library and Agriculture Academy Library.
