Open Access Week: Bioethics

Here at the Center for Bioethics we are marking Open Access Week by highlighting our free electronic collection, the Bioethics Digital Library (BEDL).

BEDL works to provide access to: out of print books that are now regarded as “classic texts” in bioethics and humanities; court decisions and legislation; government documents; the “gray” literature (unpublished, but authoritative professional literature such as conference abstracts, presented papers, commission meeting minutes); full text of journal articles; and both audio and visual materials.

Popular items in the collection include:
