Learn to use the free reference management software Mendeley Web to save your references, annotate and take notes on your articles, and create bibliographies for your papers and articles. Mendeley allows you to organize your article, book and report references using folders, tag them for easy search and retrieval, and access them on any device using the desktop software, iPhone/iPad/Android apps, and through a web browser through Mendeley.com. References created on any device sync seamlessly with your account on the web, and are accessible on any of your other devices. In addition, connect with other like-minded researchers through over 100,000 public research groups. Participants are encouraged to create a Mendeley Web account ahead of time at https://www.mendeley.com/ so that they are ready to begin working in the workshop.
