چکیده

Purpose – There are many challenges in the development of a digital library (DL) and their complexity can be approached effectively with a maturity model.‎ In maturity model, the features of a phenomenon are divided into different levels and at each level, they are first improved before going on to the improvement or realization of the next level.‎ The purpose of this study is to design a digital library maturity model (DLMM) in Iran.‎ Design/methodology/approach – The DLMM was designed using a qualitative approach, meta-synthesis and the Delphi technique.‎ First, the maturity features of a DL were identified by assessing 68 sources of study concerning DLs and maturity models using meta-synthesis.‎ The maturity features were then validated by experts using the three-round Delphi technique.‎ Finally, the experts were asked to categorize these features into the five levels of the capability maturity model (CMM) as the base model.‎ Findings – By analyzing these sources, three categories, seven concepts and 35 codes for the maturity features of a DL were identified.‎ The majority of previous studies focused on the use of hardware/software systems as the backup and empowerment of DLs and the concept of DL content.‎ The maturity features were then validated by experts using the three-round Delphi technique.‎ Like the base model, DLMM has five levels, and most features were categorized into the third and fourth levels by the experts.‎ Features such as human resources, needs assessment of DL and readiness to create a DL were included in the second level.‎ Originality/value – This work adds the concept of the maturity model to the literature of DLs.‎
