This research focuses on developing a web application to address challenges in utilizing e-resources in academic libraries, specifically for the MLIS and BLIS programs at Saint Columban College, Pagadian City. As academic libraries transition to hybrid models integrating physical and digital collections, traditional Online Public Access Catalogs (OPACs) often fall short in providing seamless access to full-text e-resources, including unpublished and published research papers, and in offering data visualization tools.The web application developed in this study addresses these challenges by incorporating mechanisms to ensure effective access to e-resources, providing personalized recommendations, and utilizing data visualization tools. Guided by the Technological Acceptance Theory (TAT) and Diffusion of Innovation Theory (DOI), and utilizing a user-focused design approach, the application integrates modern content platform methods, offering full-text access, links to additional resources, and insights into user preferences. The application's effectiveness was evaluated against ISO/IEC 25010 standards, demonstrating a 97.48% effectiveness rate, with high scores in usability, reliability, and security. The results indicate that the web application significantly enhances the library user experience, providing valuable data for informed decision-making and service optimization. Future research should focus on integrating OPAC functionalities, cataloging capabilities, citation generation, and extending the application to all academic library resources. This study underscores the potential of tailored web applications in transforming academic libraries to meet the evolving needs of their patrons.
