Saudi Arabia: African and Middle Eastern Reading Room Country Guide

Journals and Newspapers

When researching Saudi Arabia using the collections at the Library of Congress, the selected journal and newspaper materials presented on this page are a great place to start. Most Saudi serials are not digitized. Researchers can access bound Saudi periodicals and newspapers on microfilm in Arabic in the African and Middle Eastern Reading Room (LJ-229). For journals and newspapers in English and Romanized Languages, consult the Newspaper and Current Periodical Reading Room in the Madison Building Room (LM-133).

Access to current and older Saudi serials in Arabic is provided in the African and Middle Eastern Reading Room. In the first tab below are selected subscription print and e-journals with onsite access only. The second tab below, "Newspapers on Microfilm," lists Saudi newspapers that have been microfilmed and are available onsite or through interlibrary loan.

Below are selected subscription print and e-journals related to Saudi Arabia available only onsite at the Library of Congress. The e-journals may also be available through subscription databases at your local library. The titles link to fuller bibliographic information in either the Library of Congress Online Catalog or the E-Resources Online Catalog.
