What is Mendeley?

Mendeley is a free citation management tool with an academic social network option. It allows you to organize your research, annotate PDFs, create bibliographic citations, discover new research, and collaborate with others online. Mendeley requires a desktop download but also has a web component and the two can be synced together.
