Short Description:

The aim of the project is providing an updated overview of available informative and educational resources in bioethics: bibliographic documentation, internet sites, events, news, etc.
Of main importance is the SIBIL database, which records and collects Italian literature, both official and non conventional, since 1995. The database is a tool for easily locating documents within a network of Italian centers working in the field of bioethics.
SIBIL improves access to information relating to bioethics and promotes its diffusion at a national and international level; it gathers and coordinates data from a variety of sources; it facilitates the sharing and exchange of information between research groups and Ethics Committees operating in Italy.
SIBIL is targeted for researchers, health workers, teachers and general public; institutions, committees, universities, centres and other organisations concerned with bioethics and, more in general, with biomedical research; students and schools; libraries, and other organisations that handle documentary material on bioethics.
Through SIBIL is possible: to search for documents by author, title, year of publication, place of publication, publisher, type of publication, key-words; save and/or send such documents by e-mail; link up to full texts or to other sites indicated without closing the current session; request bibliographical searches and receive results by e-mail. It is also possible to consult the Italian Thesaurus on Bioethics (TIB) used to index documents.
The TIB thesaurus: links terms both hierarchically and by association; shows synonyms and related terms; is regularly revised and updated; can be consulted and downloaded in its entirety.
