It is my pleasure to welcome you to the KFUPM library. The Deanship of library Affairs is committed to offering quality services and resources to support the teaching, learning and research activities. In this regard, it spends a major portion of the library budget in acquiring print, as well as electronic resources such as e-journals, e-books, and multimedia. We have also joined the Saudi Digital Library (SDL) project that gives our users access to thousands of e-books and e-journals.


The Sierra ILS (Encore) helps the users to search library collections and also provides them to perform online functions such as renewal, review, hold etc. We currently provide title-level access to over 62,000 e-journals and more around 500,000 e-books. We also provide a unified search facility “SmartSearch” that enables users to search all print and most e-resources with a single search interface. 

The Deanship of Library Affairs constantly seeks to improve our collections, services, and the library Website. In this regard, we request faculty, researchers, and students to forward their suggestions/ideas to the Dean of Library affairs via email at or use the Ask a Liberian link in this regard. This will surely help us for improving our information support for your teaching, learning, and research at KFUPM.
