Now Persian digital resources allocate very little volume in digital libraries. This shows some problems. Therefore, the main objective of this study is to identify e-lending issues in digital libraries from the viewpoints of Iranian electronic publishers. Quantitative approach with analytical survey method was used in this study. 21 electronic publishers were studied by researcher-made questionnaire. In order to analyze data, needed formulas were used for account percentage, median and so on. Microsoft excel spreadsheet application was used to analyze data. Findings showed that e-lending needs different tools, methods and business models. Electronic publishers are young in producing electronic content. Moreover publishers publish most of their resources on CDs and PDF format. But they agree (with about 90 percent) with e-lending by digital libraries if they care copyright. In this way, they need dealers to manage e-lending process and warranty their benefits because of their financial limitations and weakness in applying ICT.
