The aim of this paper is to evaluate accessibility, usability, and usefulness of digital library plus (dl+) from the faculty members’ perspective. A questionnaire was prepared, and sent to the email address of all participants who had registered in digital library plus. Data analysis shows that only a few number of faculty members are interested to register in digital library and use it. Most of the subjects intended to use e-journals. They believe that journal structures are easy for using. Digital library plus is almost one of the digital library for researchers, educators, graduators, and postgraduate students of Iran in English language. As it is, in its beginning most of the faulty members are not familiar with this phenomenon. In fact digital library evaluation has various aspects but this paper focuses on usability, accessibility, and usefulness of digital library. This paper provides insights into evaluation of digital library plus from the users’ perspective.


Key words: Digital library plus, digital library evaluation, faculty members.
