We have updated all of our mezzanine study lamps and chandeliers with new energy efficient LED lightbulbs. Not only do these new bulbs use less energy, last longer, and don’t contain mercury but they also produce a warmer color of light that is more pleasant and welcoming. We hope you enjoy the updated lightning during your next visit.

Getting a chance to speak with Katherine about the impact the Bioethics Research Library and tailoring our services to students was really enjoyable. Read the full article at The Hoya, “Bioethics Library Re-evaluates Hours” by Katherine Richardson. We welcome follow-up comments and suggestions on how we can best help students throughout the academic year. Please share you thoughts with us on Georgetown Ideas.
The BRL holds the University’s collection of books and materials related to bioethics. These include books on: the foundations of bioethics; clinical bioethics and ethics committees; animal welfare; disability; environmental ethics; genetic engineering; research and human experimentation; religious perspectives on bioethical issues; and global and cultural perspectives in bioethics. The BRL also houses the Kampelman Collection on Jewish Ethics and the Islamic Medical and Scientific Ethics collection; many items from these collections are also available to borrow.
Borrowing policies for the BRL can be found online. As with most other books in the University Library system, you can place holds on any item listed as “Available” and return checked out books to any of the Georgetown libraries. The Library is open Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5 pm and on Saturdays from noon to 5 pm (but always check the website for changes to hours). If you have questions, you can always contact the library at email@example.com or (202) 687-3885.
The Bioethics Research Library is part of the Kennedy Institute of Ethics, one of the world’s premier bioethics institutes. The Kennedy Institute is committed to a civil dialogue on the pressing questions of the day in a climate of intellectual openness and lively discourse.
