Sending out Invitations to Advanced Mendeley

Advanced Mendeley Class

-Sending out emails/invitations

Hello ULS Colleagues,

Thank you for your interest in our  training session on the citation
management system, Mendeley. As part of my Instruction Internship with
ULS, I will be instructing on the use of Mendeley Desktop and Mendeley
Online, as well as the capabilities on our databases and in Microsoft
Word.

We will meet on the ground floor of Hillman Library on Tuesday, July 23
from 11:00AM – 12:30 PM.  Please let me know if you are not able to attend
the class, or have any questions about the class.

I strongly encourage that you bring a laptop to the training session, or
borrow one from the lending station. Mendeley uses a desktop version that
is linked to an individual account.  If you would like to use the desktop
software during class, please bring your own computer with the software
already loaded on it.
