Our Mendeley Advisors have been doing great work all around the world. We’d like to recognize them with this post and to let you know that if you have questions about Mendeley, you can reach out to your local advisor for help.
Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) Head Librarian and Mendeley Advisor, Chris Erdmann was kind enough to lend out the super-cool Collaborative Space (complete with Wii) @ the Wolbach Library for a Boston Advisor & Librarian Meet-Up and separately organized a demo for the Institutional Edition with all of Harvard’s key librarians.

As we cross over into the latter half of the academic semester, I can already tell it’s going to be a great semester for us. We’ve crossed over a million users and have seen millions of documents added in the past few months. This isn’t to toot our own horn, though, because we couldn’t have done it without the support of the wonderful Mendeley community. So I’d like to take a few sentences to thank everyone who has made this our best semester yet.

Last Friday, 30 folks came over to the Mendeley offices in New York for drinks and conversation. Attendees were from all over the city, including NYU, Columbia, City University of New York, Einstein College of Medicine, and Nature Publishing’s NY. James Hedges and Umesh Rajashekar, post-docs from The Laboratory for Computational Vision at New York University spoke briefly about how they use Mendeley and how they’re trying to spread the word about us. They initially picked Mendeley because it’s cross-platform and has great annotation features, but came to realize that the social networking component is really useful for finding related research. Their main challenge has been convincing their PI and the senior post-docs who are already set in their ways that it’s worth the time to switch to Mendeley. It’s worth mentioning that two of the top 10 papers in computer science on Mendeley are on the subject of computer vision, so perhaps they’re doing a really good job!
Here’s a few pictures from the night:Read More »
‘Lost in citation, APA or MLA, Shown with Mendeley’
We asked our Mendeley Advisors to submit a haiku on their Advisor application and the material that was submitted was so impressive we thought we would open up submissions to the wider Mendeley community. If you’re a poet (whether you know it or not), send us a tweet including #mendeleyhaiku or post on our Facebook page and we’ll add it to our collection. To make it a little more fun, we’ll pick a winner and feature their haiku on this blog, twitter, and our Facebook page. We’ll also give the best scholarly poet to enter our competition the item of their choice from our Cafepress page, and a premium account for ten of their friends who aren’t using Mendeley yet.
Scoring will be based on the number of retweets or likes of the post. Haiku should follow the traditional form and must include the #mendeleyhaiku hashtag or be posted to our Facebook page to enter.
DEADLINE is February 14th, so get your creative juices flowing!
