The Bioethics Research Library of the Kennedy Institute of Ethics is home to the world’s largest and most diverse collection of materials on the ethics of health, the environment, and emerging technologies.

The goal of this and other digital collections of the Bioethics Research Library is to digitize, preserve and extend the history of bioethics. Learn more about our other collections, including rare and archival materials, here; learn more about the Kennedy Institute of Ethics, one of the world's oldest centers for applied ethics, and home to many founders of the field of bioethics, here.

These digital collections are broken down into three sub-communities, each reflecting a different area of the Library's resources. You may also search the entire community by using the search bar above.
