GIDEON is an EBSCO database focused on infectious diseases. Entries on drugs, vaccines, pathogens, microbes, and countries provide a wide range of information and data on treatment, pharmacology, epidemiology, and prevalence or incidence of diseases and vaccines by country. GIDEON also includes interactive tools for differential diagnosis and identifying pathogens, and outbreak maps by country and disease. The database's epidemiological and biochemical focus will likely prevent GIDEON from being a useful point-of-care tool for most healthcare professionals. The interface also has some accessibility issues, making features like maps and charts unusable for some patrons. However, researchers, faculty, and students interested in infectious diseases will find GIDEON a valuable compendium of relevant information.
