Behavioural intention of undergraduates to adopt digital library: an investigation into private universities in Malaysia. Degree thesis, Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman. (2016)


Digital library is gradually becoming an indispensable self-learning tool especially for students who are pursuing tertiary education. However, many students still underutilise digital library resources. This issue then triggers the need of investigating the drivers that affect undergraduates’ behavioural intention to use digital library among the private universities in Malaysia. In order to enhance the fitness of Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology 2 model in determining the antecedents, information quality from Information Systems Success Model was integrated into the proposed conceptual framework. The
determinants analysed comprised of performance expectancy, effort expectancy, social influence, facilitating conditions, hedonic motivation, habit, and information quality. For data collection purpose, questionnaires were distributed to 500 undergraduates of Malaysian private universities through either online or face-to-face methods. The sampling locations included Melaka, Perak, Selangor,
and Sarawak. Reliability test, normality test, Pearson Correlation Coefficient analysis, and Multiple Linear Regression were utilized for data analysis. The results show that all independents variables had a positive and significant association with behavioural intention to adopt digital library except for effort expectancy. Conclusively, this research successfully developed a new modified UTAUT2 and verified its applicability in digital library study.
