In the present study, we investigated the attitudes of supervisors, staff and individuals in charge of libraries of Tehran, Iran and Shahid Beheshti universities of medical sciences on the quality and quantity of use of 22 theses on librarianship and medical information course written by students of faculty of management and medical information proposed in years 1992-1993. Data were elicited through two kinds of questionnaires submitted to medical libraries' staff and the supervisors of investigated theses. All questionnaires were filled out and there was no missed one. The findings showed that 58% of libraries' staff was unaware of the theses which had investigated their libraries as their investigation community. Those who were informed of these theses, had not studied them firstly because they didn't access to them and secondly because they didn't need them. Of those who had studied the theses, only 2.1% had made some changes to their libraries according to the research findings after study. 77.28% of supervisors had pointed or referred to their supervised theses. 45.5% of theses' results were published as papers or presented in student seminars of librarianship. Half of the theses were benefitted in the choice of titles for other theses.
