GIDEON ebooks series review by Dr. Mary Wilson, Associate Professor of Global Health and Population, Harvard School of Public Health has appeared in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases (CID 2010; 51(10):1227–1228).
[GIDEON] has now developed the GIDEON e-books system. This massive database, 411 books with 95,000 pages, presents material in 2 formats, by country and by infectious disease. Data are culled from papers published in journals, textbooks, Health Ministry publications, and materials from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization.
The advantages of the system are many. It is an extraordinary database. It assembles a vast amount of material and makes it available in a consistent format.
