Background and Objectives: Since the social challenges have made information a valuable commodity, and since the need of graduates to become lifetime learners is to acquire basic information literacy skills, for effective learning in higher education, This research was carried out with the objective of evaluating the information literacy status in the students of Qom University of Medical Sciences during 2010–2011.   Methods: In this descriptive study, 120 students of Qom University of Medical Sciences were studied through DAS information literacy characteristics questionnaire (a standard questionnaire for measurement of real and basic information literacy designed by Davar Panah, Siamak). Data were analyzed using T.F. and LSD post hoc statistical tests at significance level of p<0.05.   Results: In this study, the mean score of acquired information literacy level of responders to whole questionnaire was 31.84±10.25. The mean scores of information literacy in different faculties were estimated as follows: paramedical Faculty students (32.70±9.97), School of Health (28.73±9.53), School of Nursing and Midwifery (32.52±10.50), and School of Medical Sciences students (36.61±10.60). Also, there were not significant differences between information literacy and sex, nativeness or non-nativeness, parents’ educational level, and the rate of scientific productions (p>0.05).   Conclusion: According to the findings of this research, the information literacy level of the majority of students was at low level, and based on the results, no significant statistical relation was observed between information literacy levels and studied variables
