The Centre has a comprehensive and up-to-date library of books, journals and audio visuals on bioethical and medico-moral themes, as well as a specialised collection on HIV/AIDS which has been partially funded by Queensland Health. The cataloguing of the library is modelled on that of the National Reference Centre in Georgetown University in Washington and the resources are academically sound. Although we are not a lending library you are invited to consult these resources and photocopying facilities are available.
The online catalogue lists holdings from 1989 to date (1981-1988 are in process of being catalogued) and is useful as a bibliography and reading guide for professionals, students and persons interested in bioethical and related issues.
The Library holds approximately 4,500 reference texts, currently subscribes to 114 professional journals and holds in excess of 50,000 articles in the filing system, filed by subject area. Over 22,000 of these articles are now catalogued.
