Mendeley Toolkit

What Is Mendeley?

Mendeley is a free reference manager and PDF organizer; it's also a research networking site that puts you in touch with an international community.

Use Mendeley to:

  • save and organize research articles and docs (about 3,000 PDFs in the free version);
  • annotate (add your own notes and highlights to) sections of interest in saved articles;
  • generate reference lists and citations for reports and papers.

Make sure to install the Word plug-in and Web Importer which are the real powers behind Mendeley.
