The increasing volume of intellectual production and the diversity of its subjects, sources and languages have led to the emergence of many problems facing researchers and information institutions. Perhaps the most important of these problems is related to the provision of storage space for information and the diversity of processing methods in addition to problems related to the flow of information and methods of benefit from it. The present research aimed at highlighting the concept of cloud computing and clarifying the nature of its services and the models used in libraries and information centers for both beneficiaries and researchers. In order to achieve the required results, the researcher will use the qualitative method through reference to various resources, including, books, articles, papers and theses related to the current research. The research concluded that cloud computing techniques are very useful for libraries and information centers, especially as they will help libraries save costs and provide new services. However, the number of libraries that benefit from cloud computing is still low. It is not easy to move to new technology with no trained people capable of dealing with these technologies, but in the near future we will find many libraries offering their services through cloud computing.
