Mendeley is a free citation management tool from Elsevier. You can download the desktop version here. It also acts as a social platform to see what other scholars in your field are currently reading.
Mendeley allows you to grab webpages while you're browsing the internet and add those as citations in your library as well. It does include features to collaborate with others, but those are limited in the free version.
Elsevier, the company that produces Mendeley, is promoting a new version of their product called Mendeley Reference Manager. In September 2022, the previous version − Mendeley Desktop − will no longer be available for download. Due to UMB’s IT security restrictions those who are using a UMB computer − or using Office via their UMB account − will not be able to download the citation tool for Mendeley Reference Manager.
This change could potentially cause problems for UMB campus members who use Mendeley.
To avoid some problems this could cause, you may want to move your citations from Mendeley to Zotero.
To import your Mendeley library and move it to Zotero, follow these steps:
