The purpose of this study is to present a theoretical framework and practical methodology to extend the scope of Library and Information Science by incorporating the usability evaluation of e-book, which has considerably increased in proportion in the digital library. By surveying e-book users and through statistical analysis, it was found that rebuilding a set of usability evaluation factors for e-books is necessary to activate e-books in the digital libraries. This study inclusively presents a conceptual model of e-book usability evaluation and suggests guidelines for usability principles. 攀＊＊＊ 본 연구는 연세대학교 대학원 박사학위논문의 일부를 요약한 것임.＊＊＊ 서울경제신문 편집부 문화레저부 기자(firstname.lastname@example.org)＊＊＊＊연세대학교 문과대학 문헌정보학과 교수(email@example.com) 논문접수일자 : 2004년 8월 19일 게재확정일자 : 2004년 9월 10일攀攀
