Mendeley is a free reference manager and academic social network that helps you store and organise your references. It provides 2GB of storage for free and has many other useful features, including the option to read, highlight and annotate PDFs.

We support Mendeley, and provide advice and training to enable you to make best use of it. Other referencing software is available, but we may be unable to help if issues arise.
