INTRODUCTION
Background of the Study
According to Carbonell, et. al (2010), library is a collection of resources and services , and the structure in which it is housed or the collection of useful material for common use. These collections and services may be intended for use of people worldwide who choose not to- or cannot afford to- purchase an extensive collection themselves, who need material no individual can reasonably be expected to have, or who require professional assistance with their research.

Online Based Library System is one of the products in the field of Information and Communication Technology nowadays. It helps the researchers to provide easy access to the ideas and creativity of the books available in the library. Just like for example the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), National Library Network in Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington DC., where according Mitchell (2012) one of the administrator of the website, the Library Network provides access to its collections through the Online Library System (OLS), a database catalog of the library collections. The OLS offers author, title, and keyword access to library materials and makes it possible to retrieve relevant information regardless of its physical location. The same through with the HOLLIS (Harvard Online Library Information System) at Massachusetts Hall Cambridge where, there are over 70 libraries with extensive collections in numerous subject areas. Each library has its own set of policies

and procedures and should be consulted for specific questions and for assistance with research. While some Harvard library buildings are open to the public, most require a valid Harvard ID for admittance. Libraries are listed along with their contact information, hours and policies in the libraries section of the Harvard Libraries website. Some of the features of HOLLIS especially in finding books are, search the HOLLIS (Harvard Online Library Information System) Catalog by author, title, keyword, subject, and more. The HOLLIS Catalogs are databases containing records for millions of books, journals, manuscripts, government documents, maps, microforms, music scores, sound recordings, visual materials, dissertations, and data files in libraries at Harvard. One of the most comprehensive libraries in web application in the Philippines is the Philippine eLib website, where it has more than a million bibliographic records, 25 million pages of Philippine materials and has 29,000 full text journals in one sources. The Philippine eLib is a collaborative project of the National Library of the Philippines (NLP), University of the Philippines (UP), Department of Science and Technology (DOST), Department of Agriculture (DA), and the Commission on Higher Education (CHED).

The main objectives of the project are 1.To provide access to information to citizens for life-long learning; 2. Enrich local content in digital format for community and global access; 3. Build local capabilities and expertise in the creation and generation of digital information sources; 4.To provide library and information services network to
