Abstract

The use of Digital Library (Digilib) has grown rapidly. As a library management information system that can assist users to search for references, it cannot be denied that the establishment of Digilib has assisted numerous students. In order for information technology to improve organizational performance, the technology must be accepted and utilized by its users. This quantitative research aims to identify students’ perceptions of digital library at the Central Library, Universitas Indonesia. A questionnaire is distributed to 109 respondents. The data analysis employs structural equation model toward the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) model. The results of the analysis show that performance expectation significantly affects the behaviour intention of digital library users. On the other hand, effort expectation, social influence, and facilitating condition do not influence behaviour intention. Meanwhile, behaviour intention has a significant effect on use behaviour. The implication of this findings is that the Central Library of Universitas Indonesia should improve the digital library so that it can support the student centred active learning at the university.
