About the Collection

These materials are directly related to the work of the Bioethics Research Library. In some case these are direct publications created by the library to help serve the community, in other cases these are resources gathered from the community that were then housed in a central location to provide access to patrons of the Library.

Please note that the BioethicsLine and GenEthx are subsets of the EthxWeb database. These subsets were created as part of specific projects that were then housed in the EthxWeb database. The citations listed in the GenEthx collection are not duplicated in the EthxWeb collection found in the Bioethics Literature and Resources Community. Each citation attempts to help patrons locate the materials online or through their local lending library or full-text databases.
