News from the Library: Stay connected and informed, try Mendeley!

Mendeley is a free bibliographic reference manager and academic social network. This online platform enables researchers to discover scientific publications and to collaborate with others online.


Mendeley helps you to organize the papers you read, share them with colleagues, and create bibliographies and reference lists. These papers can be accessed anywhere and on any electronic device.

Mendeley currently has over 1.7 million active users in the world. It contains, therefore, a large crowd-sourced information library, with over 242 million documents.

Recently, the software has opened up new pathways for collaboration and interaction between individual students and researchers and their institutions' libraries. The fee-based institutional edition of Mendeley not only allows access to the Library's online resources, but also facilitates communication and collaboration within your group on the platform.

The CERN Library has now opened a free trial to the Mendeley institutional edition till December 2012.

If you don't have a Mendeley account already, you can create it for free here and send us an e-mail if you want to join the CERN institutional group. Don't hesitate to give it a try and give us your feedback.
