The Library of the Institute of Migration is a specialist library, dealing with research publications on international and internal migration and other related issues. The Library receives copies of most overseas Finnish periodicals, published in many parts of the world, as well as a wide range of specialist periodicals. The Library is primarily intended as a reference library, but titles are also issued on loan to persons outside the Institute staff.

In 2010 the library had over 10,000 publications on migration. The library catalogue is computerized and accessible on the Internet since 1999.

Hundreds of loans are made each year and the number is steadily increasing. The library also receives numerous inquiries on source references and research. It is also an important source used by the institute's own researcher.

Except books and publication series, the library subscribes to 38 newspapers and periodicals published by Finns abroad, 34 periodicals on migration and 66 other newspapers and periodicals. The library also has a large collection of fiction written by emigrants, genealogical publications and a large scrapbook collection on migration.
