I have been using Mendeley to manage all my bibliographic information for over a year now.  It does have limitations but ease of use and accessibility are proving a boon. I’ve become something of an evangelist and will be running a workshop at the ALDinHE conference in April. Here’s the abstract.

Manage your information social life using Mendeley

Mendeley is free academic software (Win, Mac & Linux) which enables you to manage, share, read, annotate and cite your research papers. It provides a research network to manage your papers online, discover research trends and statistics, and connect to like‐minded researchers. This workshop will introduce the key features of Mendeley for new users and explore examples how it can be used to set up collaborative projects, work and discuss in groups, and share data. It will be useful for anyone who needs to manage their own research or who supports students to do the same.

A Mendeley group for this workshop can be found at

There’s also a webinar coming up introducing Mendeley for Librarians which is actually a general introduction. Sign up here.
