Background and purpose: Today, information storage and retrieval are the main concerns in libraries and information centers, therefore, a number of library software packages are designed and used. This cross-sectional study aimed at identifying the viewpoints of librarians in Ahvaz, Babol, and Shahid Beheshti Universities of Medical Sciences towards Pars Azarakhsh Digital Library Software.
Materials and methods: This survey was conducted using a researcher-made questionnaire in a five-point Likert scale and approved reliability (Cronbach's alpha=0.822). Data was statistically analyzed using SPSS V22.
Results: According to all participants, the scores for a) search capability in different fields, b) other search capabilities, and c) search formulas were less than average level. The scores for a) display features of search results and b) ancillary facilities were found to be more than average level. In current study, all librarians in three universities had similar viewpoints (P=0.338).
Conclusion: Pars Azarakhsh Digital Library Software was found efficient enough in data entry and storage, data integration, connection space, and search display facilities for librarians and users, but the search and retrieval capabilities need to be reviewed.
