This "database" of databases is very useful in my day-to-day activities as it allows me to find quickly which databases will fit the best regarding the research questions I have. It is very complete and contains information on countries for which it is sometimes difficult to find information elsewhere.
It is impressive that your list is getting longer. The search engine (B.R.I.D.G.E. TO DATA) is useful when a researcher gets overview of various databases at a glance.
B.R.I.D.G.E. TO DATA has been very helpful for initial screening data sources for a potential epi study. It provides broad, thorough, and detailed information on each database listed in the system. It has been a wonderful tool to have, especially for feasibility evaluation.
