King Faisal Center Library


Since its establishment in 1985, the King Faisal Center Library has been considered one of the most important research-oriented libraries in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, being known for its valuable collections of resources in the field of humanities, most of which have been digitalized. The Library's general collections include nearly 200,000 book-titles, 5,000 periodicals, and 30,000 university theses, and 20,000 audiovisual materials.

The Library follows the closed-stack system. You can search its resources through Bibliographic Database (Arabic language only) and obtain their photocopies using Services for Researchers, which offer various online services, including: surveying information, obtaining photocopies and references, investigating whether certain topics have previously been studied or not, and depositing university theses.

You can also visit the Library to read books and listen to/watch audiovisual materials within the Library (from Sunday to Thursday, 9 am to 3 pm); however, viewing original manuscripts requires pre-booking.



As part of its mission to disseminate knowledge, the KFCRIS Library also donates books to libraries around the world (Al-Faisal Libraries).
