What is Mendeley?


Citation management software allows you to save and organize items found via searching the library's databases or Google Scholar. It also can be used to create reference lists and citations for papers. There are a number of software systems available

Mendeley is one of the more popular choices and reasons to choose it are:

  • Mendeley works best if your research consists mainly of PDFs. Often this is the choice for researchers in the Sciences.
  • Mendeley works well with Chrome and Safari and has a desktop version called Mendeley Reference Manager.
  • Mendeley offers 2 GB of cloud storage.
  • Mendeley has very well developed social collaboration tools. For example, you can find citations from similar users and search within its crowd-sourced research database.
  • Mendeley Reference Manager is installed on all publicly accessible computers at MRU.
