Historical Ephemera of the Bioethics Research Library
About the Collection
The Kennedy Institute of Ethics (KIE) and the Bioethics Research Library (BRL) have utilized several methods in their educational outreach program. These methods were primarily centered on ‘getting the word out’ about our mission, our collections, and how to participate and engage with our two organizations. The ephemera collection contains materials such as handouts, award ceremonies, web resources, presentations, brochures, and notes used by staff during our outreach efforts.
These resources have been gathered together in the same place so that users may peruse the history and experience the evolution the KIE and BRL over the past 40+ years. Many of the resources are now outdated and no longer represent the offerings of the KIE or the BRL, but several similar programs are active today, and others have grown out of the many varied resources you will find in this collection.
You may leave feedback regarding this collection at the Bioethics Research Library's Historical Ephemera of the BRL page.
