Abstract: 

Background and Aim: By conducting cloud computing and using cloud library, better library's services were prepared for universities’ libraries. The present research aims to determine the possibility of conducting cloud computing in Medical Sciences Universities’ libraries in Tehran from the librarian's perspective.
Materials and Methods: This was a descriptive, cross sectional study. A questionnaire survey was used for the collection of data. Face and content validity of the questionnaire has been examined by librarian experts, and also Cronbach’s Alpha Coefficient (0.77) was used for confirmation of reliability. Questionnaires were mailed to 42 selected library professionals, and a total of 40 libraries filled out the questionnaires. The results were analyzed by SPSS software and calculating independent t-test, binomial and chi-square test
.
Results: In the present study, the result showed that the mean of librarians skills for management viewpoint (22.5), the specialist personnel (19.6), the librarian attitudes toward security issues associated with cloud computing (13.15), and situation infrastructures (18.13) were significantly meaningful in all of the cases
. Also budgeting and availability of electronic services were found to be the least significant. With comparing the requirements of conducting cloud computing and library features by Chi-square test, 80.7 vs. 193/ respectively showed that libraries have good position.
Conclusion: It was found that the cloud computing by using different technological advantages is a solution for providing better and quicker services with lower prices where budgets are limited and facilities are inadequate in Tehran's medical sciences universities’ libraries
