Mendeley is a reference manager and academic social network. The Central Medical Library offers a basic (free) account as well as an upgraded account (more info*)
With a free account you get 2GB of cloud storage. You have to use Mendeley’s cloud storage in order to have a fully functioning account. However, 2GB should provide you with significant space for your collection.
No limit to the amount of public groups that can be created (share references only). You are only allowed 1 private group with 3 private members and 100mb of storage.
The Central Medical Library is now certified as "Mendeley Library" This means we can offer Premium Upgrades to up to 500 users in the UMCG. Main benefits of the upgrade are:
