News from Elsevier:
Mendeley Reference Manager will replace Mendeley Desktop in the long run
As part of the continued evolution of Mendeley, from 1 September 2022, users will no longer be able to download and install Mendeley Desktop software. Existing users of Mendeley Desktop will continue to be able to sign into, use and sync their Mendeley Desktop.
Longer-term, once we are confident that the new Mendeley Reference Manager sufficiently meets your reference management needs, we will begin the process of stopping all sign-ins to Mendeley Desktop. We will be sure to give you plenty of notice before this happens.
If you are currently using Mendeley Desktop and need to upgrade to Mendeley Reference in order to use Mendeley's Cite too please contact Scout Calvert at the following email address email@example.com
Currently, the only version of the Mendeley reference manager tool that is fully supported for users using campus-licensed MS Word products is Mendeley Desktop. The newest generation of the tool, Mendeley Reference Manager, requires access to Microsoft AppSource, which is currently disabled for UNL users, for its citation plug-in. The UNL Libraries is pursuing options with NU ITS for future solutions. In the meantime, Mendeley Desktop (https://www.mendeley.com/reference-management/mendeley-desktop) remains fully supported by Mendeley and allows for full functionality on UNL-licensed MS Word installations.
To use Mendeley Desktop and its citation plug-in for MS Word, follow the following steps:
