The statistical population of the study consists of two groups of students and professors in architecture of Shahid Beheshti University. To determine the sample size, the Cochran formula was used and the sample size in this formula was 296. The results showed that the architects mainly used images for identifying creative and And the use of details of architectural structures. The type of image content they used was mostly photos, maps and charts. Find them in engines and image databases by limiting the size of the image and following related links as long as the image was taken. One of the major obstacles in finding images for architects was the lack of familiarity with the way they were searched. Creativity, proximity to the subject, the credibility and quality of the images were the criteria for selecting content. Considering the library's share in retrieving research-based images, it is suggested that library and library librarians conduct awareness-raising activities at the university's research groups such as brochures, conferences, library visits, and workshops.
