Events at the Bioethics Research Library
Conferences and Exhibits
Exhibit Table No. 309 at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront Hotel
Please stop by at the BRL's exhibit at the annual meeting of the American Society for Bioethics and Humanities (ASBH) in San Diego. Library staff will provide an overview of onsite and online educational and research resources available via our new website. Learn how to find case studies and audiovisuals to enliven your next discussion or presentation. Track down articles and books containing empirical data on bioethics issues and drop off copies of your recently published papers for addition to the collection.
We've posted the keyword tagging vocabulary that we use to organize materials in the Collection. Many of these terms have been adopted into the MeSH language used by the National Library of Medicine. We hope that authors, journal editors, and researchers might also adopt the terms to assign keywords to their published articles.

Exhibit Booth No. 738 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center
Ask the BRL staff about the National Information Research for Ethics and Human Genetics – a special collection of materials about ethics and human genetics. This resource has been funded over the last 16 years by the National Human Genome Research Center at the National Institutes of Health. You will find a wealth of articles, books, audiovisuals, and other materials collected by BRL through the Project's online GenETHX Database at http://genethx.georgetown.edu.
BRL research specialists can speak about annotated bibliographies and one-click bibliographies available on a range of topics in ethics and human genetics. Learn more about genetics keyword tags used to make searching for relevant literature more effective and strategic.
