Many of the items we bring you each week deal with our in house projects. Whether it is a new collection we are developing, a weekly program that has become a favorite or just an exploration of a great service we provide. These are all vital to what makes the Bioethics Research Library such a vibrant part of the bioethics community, but we would be remiss if we did not also occasionally highlight our larger, collaborative projects.
