INTRODUCTION

The existence of madrassa in developing an education in Indonesia is very important, despite of many people consider that madrassa is a second of other education institutions. However, Madrassa is able to survive to develop an education in Indonesia, even Madrassa contributes to produce the excellent graduations, and who is able to glorify the Indonesia, especially in education aspect (Samsul, 2008). In this case, Ida (2012: 1) stated madrassa as Islamic educational institutions also involved in the establishment and development of the community. A shift in the values and the demands of modernization lead the institution that emphasized pragmatism dragged on the orientation of students' completion only. This pragmatic demands as if dismissing the main purpose of preparing students to be a whole human being: knowledgeable, faithful had social sensitivity and character.

Viewing in terms of quantity, the number of madrassa is large enough. At this time, there is more than 58 thousand madrassas spread from Raudhatul Athfal or kindergarten levels (18.413), Madrassa Ibtidayiah or Elementary School (22.610), Madrassa Tsanawiyah or Secondary School (12.498), and Madrassa Aliyah or Senior High School (4.918). Associated with the institution, several issues stand out, namely the small number of madrasas that have been accredited (Sulistiyani, 2010: 1).

Unfortunately, the role of madrassa that is very important in the field of education has not fully followed by managing learning resources. One of these is implementation of information technology in managing library. Nowadays, we know that the use of information technology (IT) is a matter of course in any subjects. However, it would be different when we talk about it in the madrassa, especially in a library. The usage of it, both quantitatively and quality is still very low, whereas the demands of access to resources in the learning process as one of the elements of success in improving the quality of education is crucial.

For that reason, the Ministry of Religious Affair Republic of Indonesia (MORA) in cooperation with the Department of Library Science of UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta, UIN Sunan Kalijaga Yogyakarta, and UIN Sultan Alaudin Makasar had held "The Human Resource Development Program for Madrassa Library", and one of the library materials was automation session by using "Senayan". The implementation of library automation program, known as "Senayan" or SLiMs was one of the materials to be hoped for the staffs of madrassa library having efficiency and effectiveness to manage library functions. In addition, the program is expected to be used as a means of managing digital libraries, especially in overcoming the limitation of library rooms and collections.

"Senayan" is an open source and free software developed and used by the Library of the Ministry of National Education Republic of Indonesia. It is a library management system built with an open source under the GPL v3. And, some other supporting applications of a similar nature and use in building this program include: PHP, MySQL database, and Git version control. Over the years, the application is then developed by a community of SLiMs users and activists. In 2009, SLiMs received first-class honors in INAICTA for open source software (Rasyid, 2009).

Preliminary observation on some of the madrassa libraries showed that the implementation of the program had not been maximized. So, it is considered very important for a more in-depth research on behavioral aspects of the usability and the ease of use using Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) in order to determine what factors most influence on the success or failure of real use and acceptance of the system. This research is expected to provide recommendations to the Department of Libraries and the Directorate of Islamic Education, MORA for the implementation of competency improvement of sustainable madrassa library. …
