Mendeley is a system for handling scientific refereces, compiling bibliographies, and for collaborating with others on papers, articles etc. Aalborg University Library provedes access to Mendeley Institutional Edition to all AAU students and staff.
Mendeley lets you organise your scientific sources - both references and full text documents, and makes compilation of bibliographies and collaboration with others smooth and easy.You can set up you individual Mendeley account free of charge at www.mendeley.com.
Mendeley is avilable in several editions including a free edition. However, the free edition does have certain limitations which is why the library recommends that you upgrade your current Mendeley account to AAU's Institutional Edition.
An upgrade will give you 5.0 GB personal space, room for 1000 groups, with max. 25 persons per group, and 20 GB shared space. Read more about this at Mendeley's page regarding the difference between the free version and the Institutional Edition.
