UBC Library Research Commons: Mendeley

Mendeley Training and Support

Mendeley is a combination of a desktop application and a website which helps you manage, share and discover both content and research contacts. The website version was modeled after Last.fm, the social networking music site; it incorporates social features into the academic process and allows users to share references with other users or groups, share new research, discover research trends, and get recommendations based on one's interests.

Mendeley is free to download. You can download the most recent version whether you are using a Mac, Windows, or Linux operating system here:

NOTICE: Systematic downloading or harvesting articles, citations, metadata (e.g. using citation managers such as EndNote or Zotero) is strictly prohibited. (You must contact lib-license@lists.ubc.ca. Permission is required or a Text and Data Mining Package should be purchased.)

Mendeley Workshops

The Research Commons team offers monthly 2-hour workshops to get you started with Mendeley. In these hands-on workshops, you'll learn how to import and organize your research citations and format your bibliographies in the citation style of your choice. You'll leave the workshops with a basic database of research citations and the skills to build on it.
