Abstract:

As the scientific literature grows, so does the need of scientists to keep up with some portion of it. Collecting documents on paper is problematic for several reasons, including the fact that people want to work wherever they are, and not just where their personal library of papers may be. With Mendelay, users store their personal library of (possibly annotated) papers in the cloud. Mendelay has a large bibliographic database of its own, and portals to various digital libraries. In this presentation we'll provide a demonstration of Mendelay, and offer suggestions for possible improvements.
