dc.description Final doctoral research paper presented at JCDL 2005 Inaugural Doctoral Consortium, 7 June 2005, Denver, Colorado, USA.
dc.description.abstract This dissertation will study the interaction between frequent users and the digital libraries they regularly visit, specifically to gain a greater understanding of the factors which underly users’ decision-making with regard to the storage of digital library items in their private information collections. An important component of this will be the development of meaningful insights into prevailing user perceptions of the digital library collection within the user work space, and how such perceptions influence and govern the treatment of the items found within the digital library. This dissertation will contribute to the advancement of our understanding of user perceptions and utilization of digital libraries, especially as such relate to their own personal collections. The knowledge generated by this dissertation will help to shape and influence the development of more effective and more responsive digital library design in the years ahead.
