Mendeley has a desktop version, Mendeley Desktop, and a web version, Mendeley Web.

 

 You can download Mendeley Desktop using the button Download Mendeley Desktop. If you use the Desktop version, you can create and organize your collection of references and documents. You can also drag PDF files into Mendeley Desktop, to introduce a reference immediately, and you can underline or add notes to documents while you read them. You can also share documents privately with colleagues.

 

 To obtain the latest updates for both versions, you will need to synchronize them periodically, using the Sync button in Desktop.

 

 From Mendeley Desktop, go to the Tools menu and sownload:

- The Web importer  (or "Save to Mendeley"). Then drag this button to the bookmarks toolbar in your browser, so that you can import references and documents from databases or web pages automatically.

- The MS Word plug In, Libre Office Plug In, so that you can add citations to you text documents.
