Mendeley: Introduction to a Reference Management Program (Self-paced)
BeginnersPrerequisites

Tue 19 Nov 2019

Description

Mendeley is a free reference management program. It was originally primarily intended as a way to manage collections of PDF documents and this is still its main strength in comparison with other tools such as EndNote and Zotero.

Mendeley can be used to insert reference citations and a bibliography of cited references into Word and Open Office documents and may be of interest to anyone wanting a free reference management program which will create BibTeX citation keys and paste them into a LaTeX document.

This is a basic introductory course and probably will not be very useful to those who are already using the program and who have specific queries about the way it works.

Users who need help with more advanced features can request individual help via the UIS service desk email: servicedesk@uis.cam.ac.uk

  • All current University members (departments and colleges)

Familiarity with the use of a web browser and either Word, Open Office or LaTeX
