Bioethics. LC Science Tracer Bullet.
Martin, Cathy, Comp.; Cadoree, Michelle
This guide lists published materials on many aspects of bioethics, the literature of which is varied and scattered. Related guides in the LC Science Tracer Bullet series are TB 80-9, Terminal Care, TB 80-11, Drug Research on Human Subjects, TB 83-4, Science Policy, and TB 84-7, Biotechnology. Not intended to be a comprehensive bibliography, this guide is designed-as the name of the series implies-to put the reader "on target." Sections include: (1) introductions to the topic; (2) subject headings used by the Library of Congress, under which books on bioethics can be located in most card, book, CD-ROM, and online catalogs; (3) basic texts; (4) additional texts; (5) related and specialized texts; (6) handbooks, dictionaries, and encyclopedias; (7) sources for locating conference proceedings; (8) selected conference proceedings; (9) government publications; (10) selected government publications; (11) abstracting and indexing services that index relevant journal articles and other literature; (12) journals in which articles on bioethics can be found; (13) representative journal articles; (14) selected materials available in the Science Reading Room pamphlet boxes; and (15) additional sources of information.
