Mendeley @ Levy Library: Home


Mendeley is a free desktop and web-based program that combines reference management and social networking to help researchers stay on top of an increasing number of PDFs and to work collaboratively with their colleagues. Mendeley operates in PC, Mac and Linux environments and links with Microsoft Word and OpenOffice.

The charm of Mendeley is the magic behind the curtain after the Drag and Drop of a PDF. Mendeley automatically extracts metadata and fills out citation information fields with author last name, title, date, etc. Mendeley's file management system creates a directory of your PDFs with names that make sense instead of "fulltext.pdf."

Experience the Social Networking benefits of Mendeley. Create a user profile, collaborate with colleagues, join groups, follow publication trends and discover articles and journals that are being discussed and read in your field right now.
