Description: The Bioethics Research Library at Georgetown University is a destination library for bioethics scholars worldwide and a remarkable historical study space for the Georgetown community.
The Bioethics Research Library at Georgetown University began as a few shelves of books collected by the Kennedy Institute of Ethics scholars. As the interdisciplinary field of bioethics grew, so did the library. It is the home of the world’s largest and most extensive collection of materials on ethics, medicine and biomedical research. Located in historic Healy Hall, the Library is popularly used for quiet study, weekly bioethics cookie Friday discussions, evening events and a destination for visiting researchers to access our unique collections and archives. The Library now includes:
more than 100,000 books, journals, archival materials and digital objects;
works spanning classical thought to contemporary and emerging issues;
rare and unpublished works to ephemeral, hard-to-find gray literature; and
a diverse range of opinions expressed on bioethical issues covering the full range of religious, political and cultural perspectives developed globally.
