The purpose of this research lies in analyzing strategic plan dimensions for research development in the Organization of Libraries, Museums and Documentation Center of Astan Quds Razavi. For this purpose, current status of research in the organization for four strategic development dimensions (attitude, policy, management, staffing) from the organization's senior professionals views have been investigated.
The method of this research is based on descriptive survey. 34 AQ organization's senior professionals were selected as a sample. The tool for collecting the data was a questionnaire made by researchers.
The data showed that there is a relative satisfaction of the researchdevelopment programs (with regard to four dimensions: attitude, policy, management, staffing) in the AQ organization. The positive attitude of AQ organization's senior professionals is an opportunity for research development. The data also showed that one of the more important challenges for AQ research development is a weakness in policy making dimension. Although there have been management issues in AQ organization research development, experts’ relative satisfaction of the quantity and quality of research projects could be promising for the possibility of changes in the research structure. However, some problems and challenges are: lack of research funding and low research fees, poor research facilities and conditions, necessity of encouraging researchers to select and implement appropriate research projects, challenges about research findings advertisement, research administrative structure ineffectiveness, problems related to the publication of research findings and their implementation, failure to allocate adequate facilities for the research advancement and the lack of a suitable environment for development in research. The findings also showed that there is a good level of satisfaction about AQ organization interaction with other research organizations and researchers. There is dissatisfaction about low impact of research activities in staff gradation.
