The main purpose of this research is to determine the views of referred individuals to public libraries of Iran about mobile learning on the basis of FRAME model. This study is an applied research conducted in the form of survey method. The population of study was 180 individuals specified based on the method of determining the size of samples from unknown populations using clustersampling method from referred individuals to 21 public libraries of Mashhad city.Data were collected using researcher made questionnaire of mobile learning based on FRAME model. The validity of questionnaire was approved using expert ideas and the stability was approved using Cronbach's alpha coefficient. In the views of referred individuals, the instrument of mobile learning should contain a small size, touch screen, a memory with more than 20 MB, high processing speed, wireless internet connection and Android operating system. Also, the effect of general factorson public libraries is significantly higher than average level, but mobile learning in social factor was less than average level. In addition, the rate of applying mobile learning devices by referred individuals in connections related to learning (interactive learning) in public libraries was less than average level. As a result, there was a significant difference between the suitability of mobile learning potentialities for educational and library activities. This research is the first research about mobile learning in public libraries that according to a specific model attempted to analyze the influential factors on this type of learning.
