The Migroteka collection is made available to the libraries free of charge. The collection expands, as Polish Migration Forum receives new book donations and financial support towards purchase of books towards this project. Today, each library hosts a collection of about 50 migration-related titles - the search mechanism above allows to check, which titles are available in which locations.

Migroteka project is supported by the Oxford University Press, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), US Committee for Refugees, Routledge, Austrian Integration Fund, Intercultural Center of Professional Adaptation (MCAZ), Association of Legal Intervention (SIP), International Organization for Migration (IOM), Center of Professional Advancement of Teachers (CODN), Polish Humanitarian Organization, Catholic University in Lublin (KUL), Gdańsk Psychological Publishing House, the European Fund for Integration of Third Country Nationals and the state budget. It is also sponsored by a private donor.

The entire project is run thanks to many supporters and donors. It gained momentum in 2009, when Polish Migration Forum received a grant for Migroteka from European Fund for Integration of Third Country Nationals. In 2014 we have a received another grant from EFI for Migroteka 2. In this year we purchase additional 30 books on migration and multiculturalism in Polish and English. We also run multicultural workshops in the libraries that are interested in such form of partnership.
