Mendeley for Researchers workshop

Wednesday 20 March, 14.30 – 16.30, South Kensington, Central Library training room 1 (level 1)

Mendeley’s (free, paid for premium account available: web and offline access) objective is to give researchers access to a vast library of bibliographic references and information through the sharing of individuals’ personal libraries. Through tags and other metadata you can search through all of the information uploaded by other researchers to Mendeley’s online database. Collaborative features, including groups, and social networking features make it a significantly useful tool beyond bibliographic management.

The workshop, run by a member of the Mendeley London team, will also include Imperial researchers talking about how they use Mendeley.

This session is aimed at PhD students, post-doctoral researchers, academic staff and postgraduate taught course students who have had little or no experience of using Mendeley.

Sign up for these sessions via the Book a Workshop link on the Library home page.
