Lithuanian Virtual Library works on the basis of Primo. Primo is a system of search and presentation of local resources (books, journals, doctoral dissertations of Lithuanian academic libraries network (LABT) ) and remote resources (electronic resources of foreign libraries, subscribed databases and etc.). Readers can see the storage location and accessibility of resources.
You can find information resources in Lithuanian virtual library which are separated into three groups:
Library resources of Lithuanian academic and scientific institutions – information sources of 64 libraries catalogues;
Subscribed databases – access to 181 databases, subscribed by libraries of Lithuania. These databases are separated into 31 resources, which are named by the titles of institutions subscribing databases;
Other resources – Primo Central catalogue, open access databases and LIBIS cumulative catalogue.The search is done much quicker in Primo Central catalogue, than from subscribed databases. There are more than 400 millions of records cumulated with links to the scientific publications from all over the world and other resources in Primo Central catalogue.
A new enrichment opportunity for search results has been introduced - Recommendations that can be made both from Primo Central Catalogue and subscribed databases. Recommendations will help you to find the most popular and most relevant scientific information related to the information that was already found. WEB 2.0 technologies integrated into the webpage of Lithuanian Virtual Library enables a user to get RSS news, to write comments, to rate sources, to attach marks for the sources found in the libraries catalogues, internet and databases.
