Anscombe Bioethics
Vatican Double Helix Staircase
Bioethics Centre
The Anscombe Centre Library is a specialist bioethics reference library of over 7,000 titles, and we believe it to be the largest bioethics library in the United Kingdom. We also subscribe to a wide range of scholarly journals.

The library is an important national resource, and receives regular visitors, including students and researchers from universities around the UK and Europe. It has been described as 'The National Catholic Bioethics Library'.

The library is currently in storage in Oxford, and our staff in temporary accommodation, but over the next three years we will be raising funds to house the library and journal collections in central Oxford, making them accessible to students, researchers and the general public. In the meantime we have not stopped purchasing books and will continue to keep the stock up to date with the cutting edge of bioethical research.

If you can help with our fundraising plans, please see our 'Support Us' page, or contact our Director, Dr David Jones directly on or on 01865 610 212
