Course outline:

Mendeley is a package for collecting and organising reference information and for citing references in a Word document. It enables you to cite references and produce a bibliography automatically in a preferred style and is especially useful for those writing papers and theses. By the end of the session you will:

  • understand what Mendeley is and what it can do
  • be able to create, open and close an Mendeley Library
  • be able to add and edit a reference manually and by importing information from electronic sources such as databases and library catalogues
  • be able to organise and manage references
  • be able to insert citations and bibliographies into a Word document

  2. Mendeley is available on laptops we use for this course. After the course, you may need to install it on your own computer. UCLH staff will need to consult the Trust IT ServiceDesk for advice if they wish to install the software on a UCLH-owned computer.
