Description Currently there is penetration and continued development of technological infrastructure in universities, however, it warns that there is minimal usability of those technologies that quickly spread. Therefore, the present study sought to identify factors related to usage behavior of the virtual library, taking an approach to the understanding of these factors, through a case study applied at the Universidad de Gomez Palacio in Durango, Mexico, where a survey designed in two stages by five-point Likert scale was applied. Showing that the factors identified in the TAM (ease of use and perceived usefulness) influencing behavior using virtual library students and these factors are determined by elements such as knowledge of the platform, friendly interface, teacher’s momentum and efficiency in finding information.
Actualmente existe penetración y desarrollo continuo de infraestructuras tecnológicas en las universidades, sin embargo, se advierte que es mínima la usabilidad de esas tecnologías que rápidamente se propagan. Por tal motivo, la presente investigación buscó identificar factores relacionados con el comportamiento de uso de la biblioteca virtual, teniendo un acercamiento al conocimiento de estos factores, a través de un estudio de caso aplicado en la Universidad de Gómez Palacio de Durango, México, en donde se aplicó una encuesta diseñada en dos etapas mediante la escala Likert de cinco puntos. Evidenciando que los factores definidos en el TAM (facilidad de uso y utilidad percibida) influencian el comportamiento de uso de la biblioteca virtual en los alumnos y estos factores son determinados por elementos como: el conocimiento de la plataforma, la interfaz amigable, el impulso docente y la eficiencia en la búsqueda de la información.
