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 Desktop, Mendeley MS Word Plugin, and Mendeley Web Importer on the Windows operating system. The Library provides support on the macOS operating systems if Microsoft Word 2013 or newer, or Office 365 is installed. The Library does not provide support for older versions of Mendeley, beta versions of Mendeley, non-Microsoft word processing software, or alternative operating systems.

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