Su información es particularmente relevante pues responde a metodologías de alta calidad y trabajan con muestras de poblaciones variadas y en ocasiones con un número considerable de personas. La Biblioteca Virtual reúne los repositorios de las agencias de la ONU para incentivar la búsqueda ampliada de investigaciones que transversalicen la migración con otros temas relacionados con el desarrollo sostenible.
