It is important to keep your library organised so that you can easily retrieve references you need. In this section we look at various activities essential to keeping your library organised, and also look at how to share your Mendeley library with others.
Searching your library: If your Mendeley library contains many references it is useful to be able to search it to retrieve particular references.
Using folders: Organise your references into folders to make them easier to find or to categorise them to assist your research workflow.
Mendeley Desktop continues to be available for existing users but is no longer available to download and is no longer under development. For guidance on using the new Mendeley Reference Manager, Mendeley Cite and Mendeley Web, see our Mendeley guide.
