Liveliness of any library is directly related to the rate of using its information services and resources. Studying the amount of the existing information resources used by faculty members, who account for a considerable portion of the library users, can be a positive step for promoting the quality of library services and resources. In this descriptive survey, 72 percent of research community (Iran University of Medical Sciences' Faculty Members) answered the research questionnaire.
