The LMA library contains an outstanding maritime collection of print and electronic books, journals, and databases that support research and teaching. 


Lending services

Only members of the Lithanian Maritime Academy community can order and borrow publications at home. The loan status of an item is indicated in the section “Locations and Requests” of the Library Catalogue and Virtual Library. Some items are to be read in the reading rooms only, the others have a certain loan period varying from 1 day to 1 semester. Loan periods are usually determined by the librarians. The students can use the Lithuanian Student Identity Cards (LSIC) and the International Student Identity Cards (ISIC) (hereinafter — Student Card) as library cards. All borrowers must use their Student Card/Identity Card each time a loan is made.

Loans and Reservations

Most of the latest (recent) items are freely accessible on open shelves. The LMA students can borrow (or book for later usage) books and other items from the Library’s collection. Readers can search and order publications via the LMA Library Catalogue and Virtual Libraty.

Renewal of Loans

The renewals can be made via the catalogue or LMA virtual library’s website; you can also renew your loan by telephone, e-mail or visit library information desk.


All borrowed items must be returned before the end of the loan period. The students who are about to graduate from the Lithuanian Maritime Academy or to terminate their studies have to close their library accounts: to return all the borrowed items, to replace the lost items if there are any.
