What is Mendeley?
Mendeley is a free reference manager, comparable to EndNote, that allows you to organize references, create citations, and bibliographies. It is also a PDF viewer which allows you highlight, annotate, and organize research papers all in one place. Mendeley has a social network feature in which you can create groups and collaborate and share with colleagues.
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.
