English abstract

The aim of this report is to evaluate digital library websites, and make a critical analysis. For this purpose, four digital libraries, namely the Public Library of Science (PLoS), International Children’s digital Library, North South University, and International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh (ICDDR,B) have been considered as an example. This evaluation report has thrown light on users’ perception of the digital library environment from three different points of views that is usefulness and value of the content, richness of functionality, and ease of use. The evaluation is followed by a general discussion and conclusion. It may help policy makers to identify ways in which they can motivate their management for building digital library interfaces and help library managers to identify their user’s different requirements in the digital library interface.
