Information visualization is an ongoing research field for exploring and delivering new insight on large amount of data in Information Retrieval (IR) community. The current study aimed to map and visualize the information of dissertations by considering the important role of dissertations in academic libraries. To achieve this aim a Subject–Title portrait was designed for presenting the interactive graphic view of dissertations’ subjects in libraries. The IR-system was designed by information visualization toolkits that presented the related subjects of dissertations in the library. In addition a standard questionnaire (QUIS Questionnaire) was administered among users for measuring their satisfaction-levels. The designed IR system provided a user-friendly environment through displaying subjective relations of dissertations, overwhelming variety of colors in displaying information. Fast and easy access to the cover-to-cover information of dissertations and user-interaction facilities were the advantages of designed IR. Analysis of data indicated that the user satisfaction from altered features was evaluated from medium to high. Satisfaction from the software feature showed the highest rate (69.3%±0.47%). Designing the IR-system revealed an excessive Influence on users’ satisfaction; therefore proposing such systems for employing in academic libraries is very suitable and its implementation is necessary.
