Students at RPTS are encouraged to use Mendeley, an RPTS endorsed tool that manages one’s bibliographic data. Mendeley enables students to collect, organize, and cite their research sources in one easy-to-use platform. Students will need to input the bibliographic data for physical books manually, however, the program automatically pulls citation information from most electronic resources. When students are ready to reference their sources, Mendeley makes it easy to create citations.

The Library provides technical support for Mendeley Reference Manager, Mendeley Cite, and Mendeley web importer on the Windows and macOS operating systems. The Library does not provide support for older versions of Mendeley or alternative operating systems.

If you have a question about using this product, please contact the Library Staff during normal business hours.

*Note: Mendeley Reference Manager and Mendeley Cite is compatible with Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Word versions 2016 and above, and the Microsoft Word app for iPad. If you are using an earlier version of Word, you will need to download an older version of Mendeley Desktop.
