Bioethics Resources

  • The Bioethics Research Library at Georgetown holds the most comprehensive collection of material relating to bioethics in the world, from the earliest works in the field of bioethics to current publications. The physical and digital collection includes all formats of material, from books and journals to oral history recordings and transcripts, films and videos, ephemera, Bioethics Commission reports and meeting notes, and unpublished manuscripts. The collection is an interdisciplinary & multi-format collection on ethical issues related to health care, biomedical research, biotechnology, & the environment. Schedule a personal appointment to work one-on-one with an information specialist to find resources for your Showcase Project.
  • Explore video and podcasts from a variety of on-campus bioethics events by checking out the KIE’s podcast series, which hosts recordings of selected talks from our Friday Bioethics series, or the annual Conversations in Bioethicsseries (2014 topic: medical error; 2015 topic: personal genomics).
