An E-library is an electronic or online library where one can access books, journals, novels, articles, or any other information over the net. Library planners must acknowledge that the availability of space (or lack of it) is not the sole reason for examining physical facilities. If your library emphasizes current material and best sellers and encourages browsing use of the collection, fewer seats are needed, and the projection should be adjusted downward. If your library emphasizes research material and encourages long-term use by students and scholars, additional seats may be needed, and the projection should be adjusted upward. The study aims to assess the space and facilities of the newly constructed E-library of the University on Main Campus from the perspective of the university librarians. A survey research method using the combination of ocular inspections of the e-library and survey questionnaire was adopted for the study to adequately assess the opinion of the university librarians at Bulacan State University. Findings show that 81% of the respondents strongly agreed with the building's state-of-the-art character. 64% of the respondents strongly agree that the E-library creates a sense of arrival. It is welcoming and has an accommodating atmosphere, and there is enough staff work area and enough available collection spaces. 54.54% of the respondents agreed that the E-library has the projection of service population for the next 20 years.
