    Hi Sophie, I currently use Endnote but am thinking about switching to Mendeley. I've read that Mendeley doesn't interact as easily (i.e import references) with Library Online Catalogues /databases- have you tried it?

    Also, are there any copyright issues with Mendeley if I want to keep pdf's attached to all my references and share my library with users? Does it have the functionality to share just citations but not the fulltext pdf's?

    Hi Sarina

    1. I haven't seen any options to export references to mendeley in catalogues or databases. However they get around this by using a web bookmarking tool to bookmark and then import citation information from databases. I haven't tested this function so you may want to try it out with the databases you like to use before you give up Endnote. Here's the link to learn more: http://www.mendeley.com/import/
    2. This is a bit of a copyright minefield. You could only share someone else's copyrighted work if you have written permission from the author, or they use something like a creative commons license which allows sharing. Educational purposes only encompasses sharing a work to UTS students or staff and this sharing must occur through our DRR (http://www.lib.uts.edu.au/staff/learning-and-teaching/digital-resources-register). You can share your own materials as long as you still hold the copyright of your work and haven't signed it over to your publisher. *phew* This is why we love open access at UTS :D We have heaps of info about copyright here: http://www.lib.uts.edu.au/students/finding-information/copyright
    3.You can add citations without adding a pdf.

    I hope that helps :D
