What is Mendeley?

Mendeley is a resource manager and social network.  It allows you to open PDFs and annotate them with your own notes and highlighting. It saves your citations, and allows you to tag them and organize them into folders. The program is a software, so it requires being downloaded onto a PC or Mac, but all the information is accessible from online. The citation manager will auto-create a bibliography in the ten most popular citation styles, or hundreds of others through a download. Based on items that you have imported into the program, you can connect with other scholars with similar documents imported for collaboration and networking possibilities.
