The MacLean Center Library exists as a non-lending resource for faculty, fellows, and students working in the field of clinical medical ethics. The library is located in The MacLean Center in a beautiful new space that was remodeled in 2010. It was started by generous donations from Drs. Edmund Pellegrino, Leon Kass, James J. Smith, Beatrix G. Smith, and Alan J. Weisbard, as well as from Drs. Sulmasy and Siegler. The library currently houses an interdisciplinary collection of over five thousand books and visual media related to clinical medical ethics. The library also subscribes to twenty-five journals related to medicine and ethics, and presently maintains complete collections from Volume 1 of many of the core journals in medical ethics, including the Hastings Center Report, Journal of Clinical Ethics, Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics, Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal, Journal of Medicine and Philosophy, National Catholic Bioethics Quarterly, and Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics.
