There is a lack of literature on technology utilization in Libyan universities and this paper attempts to make a worthwhile contribution to this literature. The paper explores e-business deployment in Libyan universities, with an initial focus on the university of Misurata, situated in the north of the country between the country’s two main cities of Tripoli and Benghazi. It examines the current and potential uses of e-business, and assesses the barriers to wider use of e-business systems and technologies. Existing models to measure e-business deployment are applied and assessed, and a new model is developed to better gauge the current situation at process level in these universities. The model will be further applied at other Libyan universities and will act as a yardstick for comparing and progressing the operational implementation of e-business in these organisations.
