Immigration Research and Information
The Immigration Research Library is a free, online collection of contemporary, U.S. immigration reports, briefs, fact sheets, infographics, news and events. The Library hosts (with links to original sources) more than 1,500 U.S. immigration research reports with simple, straightforward abstracts drawn from respected universities and research institutes from across the country. This free Library is for anyone interested in U.S. immigration issues including students, researchers, journalists, educators, advocates, policymakers, direct-service providers, etc.
The Immigration Research Library is hosted by The Immigrant Learning Center’s Public Education Institute in Malden, MA, a not-for-profit organization that educates Americans on the contributions of immigrants. See “About Us” to learn more.
The Immigration Research Library was created with the assistance of three research institutes at the University of Massachusetts Boston: the Institute for Asian American Studies, the Mauricio Gastón Institute for Latino Community Development and Public Policy and the William Monroe Trotter Institute.
Please bookmark this page as new reports are uploaded every week.
How to Use the Library
The Immigration Research Library is divided into five sections: Research, Infographics, Resources, News and Events. In the Research section, you can easily filter reports by state, issues (e.g. rights and justice, demographics, economics), communities (e.g. refugees, children, Latinx immigrants, workers) and/or source organization for the report(s). Infographics are similarly tagged and may come up with your search results.
The Resources section contains links to large databases of immigration data and research from respected organizations such as Migration Policy Institute’s Immigration Data Hub.
The News section draws up-to-date immigration news articles from organizations such as the American Immigration Lawyers’ Association.
The Events section includes local and national webinars, conferences, festivals and other events related to immigration. Feel free to send us your event!
