In this paper, a relationship model among latent variables using Covariance Based-Structural Equation Modeling (CB-SEM) is studied. The latent variables are digital literacy, use of e-resources and reading culture of students. The goal of the study is to build a simultaneously model between those three variables, determine the influence of digital literacy on the use of e-resources and reading culture of students, and the influence of the use of e-resources on reading culture of students. The parameters of the model are estimated by the Maximum Likelihood method. This study took data from 256 questionnaires of students at STMIK Sumedang. Results showed that digital literacy significantly influences the use of e-resources and the reading culture of students. In contrast, there are no significant influences on the use of e-resources on the reading culture of the student.
