Introduction and expression of the problem

The exact definition of the portal has always been a challenging topic (Soheilly, 2006). The portal is a special term for the age of computers and information networks, and its emergence dates back to the mid-1990s. The portal is derived from the Latin word "partale" meaning "City Gate" (Zhou, 2003). In the simplest sense, the portal is a gateway to the web. A platform is a platform that each user must use as a source page before moving on to other destinations. Portals reduce the amount of people roaming on the web. (Highway Computer Magazine, 2003). At the same time, the portals gradually become sites that each user uses throughout their day to manage a wide range of their daily activities, such as a complete survey of news stories, stock prices, Send e-mail and long-distance messages and join the forums. Portals, therefore, carry out very different tasks, but they all consist of five main elements: management, search, content, creation of work groups and individual creativity programs. The portal for information to organize a large collection of subject matter is for the purpose of establishing a link between individuals and information (Dias, 2001)

The use of information technology in modern times has changed the way of use in libraries. The use of the portal in libraries as a new model for providing information is increasing due to the ever-increasing use of information and communication technologies. The vast expansion of information technology and applications have provided opportunities for better distribution of education and, given the increasing use of the Internet, has become a flexible way for those who want to acquire the necessary knowledge. One can refer to the portal as an information system because, in general, information systems are systems that provide information for decision-making purposes to users.

Libraries and Information Centers Portal is one of a number of portals that are both informational and affiliated, and belong to an organization called the library. A library portal is a tool for advertising, marketing and providing information about the library and its services and how to use it. On the other hand, due to the close relationship with education and research, functions can be considered in this regard for the library portal. But the library portal, as a search interface and information retrieval, plays an important role in interacting with the library (Asadi, 1393).

Today, centers and organizations such as ministries, companies and organizations are influenced by virtual environments and are trying to introduce themselves through the World Wide Web and provide their services to users in this way. Since the website and portal of each organization are the point of contact between the organization and its users, it is necessary to consider the basic and standard criteria for designing the website and the portal (Daghkeleh, Bigdeli, Azimi, 1393). The implementation and implementation of a portal requires coordination between applications and databases controlled by different entities, and this control takes place at a level that may have never been experienced before in an organization. Creating a larger portal means building an interoperable bridges that are involved with the interface page and content. The Public Library Institute, as one of the cultural institutions and fully associated with public libraries, has worked with the other cultural organizations to provide their services and programs in a centralized manner in each province, in order to provide their services and programs. The designers of public libraries portals need to be aware of port services and measure the quality of their information services in order to achieve beneficial communication between themselves and users.

Quantitative studies have examined the quality assessment of portals in libraries or libraries 'affiliates. Therefore, in this study, we will examine the various dimensions of the quality of public libraries' portals based on the Delon and McLean information system's success model. …
