Bioethics Research Library Archives

The Bioethics Research Library Archives collects materials that document the history of the field of bioethics and its impact on society. In addition to professional papers, we are committed to actively collecting materials that are generated in response to significant bioethical issues. This includes capturing and preserving ephemeral digital materials, such as blog posts and webinar recordings. Research collections on the history of bioethics, such as oral history recordings, are also within the collecting scope of the BRL Archives.

The BRL Archives are open for use by all Georgetown students, faculty and staff as well as independent researchers who are unaffiliated with Georgetown, and are accessible by appointment at the Booth Center on the 5th floor of Georgetown's Lauinger Library.

If you wish to use the archives, please review our guidelines for accessing the BRL Archives. We encourage you to explore the BRL Archives Collections before your intended visit.

For more information on types of materials collected and selection criteria please see the BRL Archives Collection Development Policy.
