This research focused on the use of e-DDC by librarians in university library in Bali. The purpose of this study was to determine the use of e-DDC and the factors that influence the use in of e-DDC in university library. The method in this research was descriptive quantitative. The population and samples used in this study were all library staffs or librarians who had used e-DDC at university libraries in Bali. The sampling technique used was total sampling. Data were collected through questionnaires, observations and interviews. The results of this study showed that the library staffs used printed DDC more than the electronic. Thus, they do not get the maximum benefit in utilizing e-DDC. This was because the information contained in printed DDC is more complete than electronic so that the utilization of e-DDC is not optimal. There were external factors that influenced the use of e-DDC namely user training, accessibility, clarity of term and ease of use. Therefore, the DDC system will need to be re-maximized (upgrade) and the librarian or library staff is also more open and adaptive to the existing system in the library. The use of e-DDC basically is to make it easier for users to find the required classification number, including the efficiency of working time in the processing section.
