Seventy- nine web logs from libraries and Iranian librarian and ten best librarianship web logs in the world in 2006 have been chosen as research community. We used direct observations and a check list -that its main factors came from Herring- and associated and based on observations and writer experiences, coaches' and weblog writers consultations for collecting data and comparing with the best weblogs, other subjects have been added in this check list including overall identifications factors, writers identifications , date , and the level of the weblog activities, technical aspect, overall concept, linkage conditions, and opinion have been showed. Collected data have been presented and analyzed using descriptive statistics method.

Results: In terms of type, it showed that 67% of Iranian web log are filtrated and 14% are scientific, Communicating services in terms of the librarianship and its news %18,coordination and similarity and communication between librarian and services performance %9 and publishing scientific information, papers and translations 9% are the main goal of the Iranian web logs. Evaluating different structural factors in Iranian librarian weblogs showed that in 40.5% of Iranian web log between 50% up to 75% of the writers identifications, 97.4% of them between 50% up to 75% of technical factors, 78.48% of Iranian weblog under 50% of overall technical factors, 64.55% of them under 50% overall containing, and 43.42% of them under 50% different type of the connections have been observed.
