An interesting tool to share with you and the group…

*[Matt Boggs] *

you have a pile of documents and you haven't found the right way to organize
them to your satisfaction? Cross-platform Mendeley organizes, indexes, and
even store your documents in the cloud to make document management painless.

Although originally created for researchers—a group generally neck deep in
documents and research papers—Mendeley provides a slew of features that are
handy and accessible to non-researchers.

There are two components to the Mendeley system. The software on your local
machine, Mendeley Desktop, and the storage in the cloud, Mendeley Web. You
can use Mendeley Desktop independently of the Mendeley Web component, but a
free account scores you 500MB of online storage for your documents for
remote access, syncing across computers, and document backup.

Mendeley Desktop extracts meta-data from your documents and builds an index
of the text within. You can quickly search across your entire library and
easily build bibliographical references from the text. The built-in document
viewer has text highlighting, sticky notes, and other annotation tools.

Mendeley Web at its most basic simply allows you to upload your documents,
access them from the web, and sync your installations of Mendeley Desktop.
If you take advantage of the more advanced features you can collaborate with
others via group review and editing of documents.

Mendeley Desktop is freeware and available for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
