Latent growth curve model are applied to analysis questionnaire data with LISREL8.7. [Results and Conclusions] The results supported the changes of belief structures over time. The levels of user beliefs (self-efficacy, perceived usefulness, and intention to use) were on the rise with the increase in the use of document database systems, while the belief of perceived ease of use did not significantly change. Self-efficacy has always influenced perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness.
