Mendeley is a free online service that allows you to index and organize your PDF documents, collaborate with fellow researchers and share information via shared and public collections, and discover new research through the Mendeley research network. In addition, you can create reference lists and bibliographies in Word or OpenOffice.
In this class, we will cover the basics of using both EndNote and RefWorks:
This class will be useful for you who are EndNote/RefWorks novices, for you who want a little tune-up, for those of you struggling a bit with the software. It will also be useful for those of you who are trying to decide which one to use (if either!)

EndNote automates the creation of bibliographies. Save hours of typing by simply selecting the publication or style by name and generating a perfectly formatted document. EndNote currently offers thousands of output styles. EndNote allows you to store PDFs and other files in your database.
RefWorks is a web-based tool that allows users to create a citation database by importing references from text files or online databases. Use these references in writing papers and automatically format the paper and the bibliography in seconds. Web-based means you can access RefWorks from any computer with Internet access. Access to RefWorks is provided by the UCB Library to UCB students, staff, and faculty.
The Bioscience Library Training Room is equipped with Windows 7 PCs. If you already have EndNote installed on your laptop, you can work on your own computer. You can also download a 30-day free EndNote trial from http://endnote.com/downloads/30-day-trial.
We are happy to announce that UC Berkeley campus users now have access to Embase, a biomedical and pharmacological database with over 25 million citations.
Comprised of the MEDLINE database (which is also in PubMed) and citations from over 2,000 unique-to-Embase journal titles, Embase has especially strong coverage in drug, pharmaceutical, and toxicological research, including economic evaluations. Over 7,600 journals from over 90 countries are indexed as well as conference abstracts from over 2,000 conferences.
Topics covered include alternative and complementary medicine, biochemistry, biomedical engineering & medical devices, clinical medicine, genetics, healthcare policy & management, infectious diseases, microbiology, molecular biology, occupational and environmental health, pharmacology & toxicology, and more. Embase uses a sophisticated indexing system called Emtree that you can use to build strong and precise searches, especially on disease and drug/substance topics.
