  Results : Title meta tags (98.53%) and Charset meta tags (89.47%) among 15 meta tag types had the most usage and refresh meta tag had the least usage. Usage of keyword and descriptive meta tags were 55.6% and 55.2%, respectively. Generally, 100% websites under investigation used one type of meta tags.

  Conclusion : Title, Charest, Robot, Keyword and Descriptive meta tags received more attention from the designers of central libraries.
