Demo of Mendeley at the IOE

The following message has been circulated, but in case you’ve missed it, here it is again:

John Jardin and Simon Litt from Swets, who represent Mendeley Institutional in the UK, will come and give us a demo of this software on  Thursday 14th March at 3.15 p.m.  The free version of this software is installed on the student machines and in the Library Teaching Room.

In case you’re asking what this is all about, here’s a brief explanation of what Mendeley can do …

Mendeley is often referred to as the ‘iTunes for Researchers’ – it is an all-singing, all-dancing bibliographic software management system and an academic social networking tool which allows researchers to share their references and find and collaborate with other researchers.  The Mendeley database now has 30M+ bibliographic references and so is a useful searching tool.

Like EndNote (which we support here at the IOE) and Zotero (another free bibliographic management software system), Mendeley can be an extremely valuable tool when doing research and composing papers. The program stores bibliographic references, figures, and PDFs all in one place on a computer, which makes retrieving these items easy.  Mendeley also works with Microsoft Word and Open Office to insert in-text citations and compose bibliographies with just a few mouse clicks. 

If you’re interested in attending this demo, please contact Nazlin Bhimani (n.bhimani@ioe.ac.uk),  Research Support & Special Collections Librarian as spaces are limited.

    Nice post. I find out some thing additional difficult on several blogs everyday. It will constantly be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a bit something from their store. I’d prefer to make use of some using the content on my blog no matter if you do not mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your internet blog. Thanks for sharing.
