Abstract

Even though many universities across the world have incorporated internet-based educational and academic systems, the success of their implementation requires an extensive understanding of the end user acceptance process. Access to academic resources for teaching and learning using technology (electronic library) has become a popular approach within higher education institutions due to the continuous growth of internet innovations and technologies. This case study research, conducted at Accra Technical University uses the technology acceptance model (TAM) as a theoretical framework. The study investigates the effects of the system characteristics such as appropriate user interface (UI), software design, and relevance towards the perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness on intention to use the proposed e-library system. Two hundred (200) students and sixteen (16) lecturers participated in this quantitative study. Results show that improvement of the existing e-library system in ATU will enable students to utilize digital learning resources for effective teaching and learning, especially during the current global COVID-19 pandemic.
