This study examines the usage of e-library among students in a public university in Malaysia using the Technology Acceptance Model. Data from a questionnaire survey of 201 students were analyzed using linear regression. The results show that individual differences (computer self-efficacy and knowledge of search domain) had a significant positive relationship with perceived ease of use. Perceived ease of use showed significant relationship with perceived usefulness but non significant with the actual usage of the e-library. For perceived usefulness, it showed a significant relationship with the actual usage of the e-library. Lessons and discussions for individual differences, perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, and actual usage are presented.
