Abstract: The term "social science libraries in Saudi Arabia" applies to libraries which are part of establishments, institutes, information centres, government departments and ministries, which are concerned with social affairs. The aims and objectives of the study have attempted to: (1) review the background and development of social science libraries in Saudi Arabia; (2) analyse a survey of the current status and assess the present and future needs of social science libraries; (3) establish library services to meet the needs of users; (4) evaluate the possibility of cooperation between these libraries in the areas of acquisition, organisation and services; (5) the study attempts to propose the goals, objectives and functions of the social science libraries; (6) propose guidelines for the establishment and development of the organisational structure, human resources, and the services; (7) plan modern library buildings and new facilities for social science libraries in Saudi Arabia which may well be useful to other developing countries.
