AbstractLibraries are an integrant part of the national informational system and strategic institutes ensuring access to any kind of information. In the last decade, in Romania, different actions were undertaken and important resources were been used in order to develop digital libraries that can be accessed by IT and C systems, especially via Internet. Until now, the projects and other development initiatives for digital libraries – especially those financed through budgetary funds – did not focus on the evaluation of satisfaction degree for the on-line library users or fulfilling their quality needs at a performance level (efficiency, effectiveness and utility) adequate with the on-line library provided service. One of the main contributions of this paper is the identifications of relationships between the importance of digital library evaluation criteria and present evaluation of digital libraries in Romania.
