Bioethics Information Retrieval Project (BIR) Selection Procedures, September 2003
Staff of the National Reference Center for Bioethics Literature
The primary role of BIR is to select and index bioethics materials for the National Library of Medicine’s PubMed and LOCATORplus databases. All three projects support staff and the purchase of equipment, and the two latter projects also support the acquisition and cataloging of materials, collection preservation and maintenance, reference assistance, delivery of Web-based services, and outreach activities. The LIS publications program, which provides reference materials to a wide and international audience, is dependent upon all three projects

It was available to patrons who visited the library and was also distributed out by staff attending bioethics and library conferences, conventions and other meetings.
