Create a Mendeley Account

Follow these steps to get started with Mendeley citation management:

1. Go to and Create a Free Account. (please make sure to use your email address for your account)



2. When you login with your new account, you will be able to view and edit your Library of citations from this page, or download an app to your computer called Reference Manager to use your Library. 

** Please note: As long as you have an internet connection, changes made to your Library will sync between the Library in your browser and the Library in Reference Manager.


Note for Mendeley Desktop Users

PLEASE NOTE:  If you have installed the Mendeley Desktop application and Word plug-in on your computer, these are no longer supported.  It is recommended that you first uninstall the Word plug-in (do this from the Tools menu in Mendeley Desktop) and then Mendeley Desktop.  To continue using Mendeley in Microsoft Word, download the Mendeley Cite add-in as described below.  You can view and edit your library from either or the Reference Manager (see instructions below).  Please contact John Garrison with any questions.
