Background and Aim: The application of information technology for the delivery of library services through websites has removed many temporal and spatial limitations. This study aimed to identify the available services and resources on the websites of central libraries at universities of medical sciences in Iran. 
Materials & Methods: The population of this descriptive study comprised 36 central-library websites of medical universities in Iran. A researcher-made checklist was used to collect data, which were then analyzed through descriptive statistics using SPSS 18. 
Results: According to the findings, “electronic mail”, “access to services via mobile” and “how-to-use-a-library instructions” were mentioned as modern technologies in 83.3%, 2.8% and 77.8% of websites, respectively. However, nothing was found on “e-learning copyright”. Concerning librarianship and library publications, 69.4% of websites included “new library sources and references”.
Conclusion: Considering the daily development of information technology, it is essential to regularly revise library websites and employ new technologies to enhance them.
