This paper presents a model for systematically organizing the activity of requirements analysis for web-based hypermedia digital libraries and for tying it up with design in a coherent fashion. In order to accomplish this goal, three conceptual tools are proposed: a goal-oriented requirements analysis model based on existing practices and concepts in requirements engineering; a lightweight notation and a taxonomy for requirement specifications. The approach presented in this paper has been developed and validated within the EU-funded UWA project (Ubiquitous Web Applications, IST-2000-25131).
