How can I save PDFs to Mendeley?

You can still save PDFs to your Library if web importer doesn’t automatically capture them. First download your PDF.

In your Mendeley library click on the item you want to add the PDF to, then in the right-hand menu containing the Reference data, simply drag & drop the PDF file or click Add File under Files.

You can open the PDF within Mendeley, just click on the file to open it

You can now annotate the PDF with highlighters and add comments. These will be saved to Mendeley and are accessible from any device you use to access your Mendeley account.

For more help please contact your Academic Librarian.
