Bioethics Literature and Resources
About the Community
In this community you will materials that were published and made available through many different media formats. These resources are organized based on similar properties, i.e. a run of a particular newsletter, or materials that were classified as being the same type of material.
In addition, this community holds nearly 300,000 citations that were created over the span of 30 years as the ETHXWeb database. The citation records have been enhanced to help you find copies of the materials through online access or your local lending library.
Many of these resources were once widely available, but now are difficult to find. These digital reproductions are meant to help preserve the physical items held by the Bioethics Research Library
Please note that the GeorgetownX: Introduction to Bioethics MOOC Archive requires a Georgetown NetID to access.
