Resources

The Library is rich in various kinds of information resources. Most Library books are in the open funds. The Library has RFID security equipment for using the funds. The information about the publications available in the Library funds and their location can be found in the Virtual Library < https://www.lvb.lt/primo_library/libweb/action/search.do?vid=VTDK&dscnt=0&dstmp=1476095420491&vid=VTDK&backFromPreferences=true >. Publications can be read in the Library or borrowed home for a term specified (whole semester, month, week or day)

The Library offers students and teachers 3 subscribed databases: EBSCO, Taylor&Francis, Emerald Management < http://www.vtdko.lt/bibliotekos-duomenu-bazes >. They provide access to the whole text articles from scientific journals, newspapers, books, conference materials, etc. The members of the community use all those databases free of charge. Access to the databases is possible either from computerized working places in the college or from personal computer at home (you need to ask for login information at first).

Erasmus+ mentors

In order to help prepare their trip as well as make their stay pleasant, all foreign exchange students are each assigned a local Erasmus+ club mentor who is ready to help them with all sorts of issues, and also to introduce them to local student life.

The name of the mentor (and his/her contact details) is sent to incoming Erasmus+ students prior to their arrival.

Medical facilities

87753812

To receive medical care, you need to have a medical insurance. Citizens of EU should apply for a free European Health Insurance Card http://ec.europa.eu/social/main.jsp?catId=559 prior to their arrival. Non-EU citizens should get a private insurance, however in this case a student usually has to pay the medical expences upon receiving the medical services, and only later apply for a refund from the insurance company (which means that falling ill may mean considerably large unexpected spending).

If you become ill and you need medical care, you can go to one of public health institutions, for example:

Centro clinic, Pylimo g. 3/1,Vilnius, tel. +370 5251 4016, fax. +370 5261 0002, e-mail: ;
