The Newsam Library does NOT currently support Mendeley. However, the software is freely available to download on your own machine. Use this guide to learn how to use Mendeley.
There are a couple different ways for you to access and use Mendeley. The following links will lead you to each where you can decide which works best for you.
Download Mendeley Desktop: this is the actual program that allows you to organize PDFs and sync to your online account. It is compatible with Windows (XP, Vista, or 7), Mac (OS X 10.5+) and Linux.
Mendeley Online: from here you can sign into your account, import citations straight from databases, access your libraries from anywhere, and sync to your Mendeley Desktop.
Web Importer: add this to your bookmark toolbar and you can import citations directly from databases and websites to your Mendeley library. This page also lists the companies that are compatible with the importer.
Mendeley is another one of the bibliographic managment software packages available freely. Like EndNote and Zotero, it can be an extremely valuable tool when doing research and composing papers. The program stores your references, figures, and PDFs all in one place on your computer, which makes retrieving these items easy. Mendeley also works with Microsoft Word and Open Office to insert in-text citations and compose bibliographies with just a few mouse clicks. The social networking feature lets you interact with colleagues on research as well as see what other people in your field worldwide find interesting.
