FSU Libraries subscribes to many databases provided by the EBSCO company. The Web Importer does not work well with EBSCO database, but you get references from those databases into Mendeley by following the steps below.
IN THE DATABASE
IN MENDELEY DESKTOP
Be sure to double check that there are no problems with the imported citations.
If you already use Zotero to manage your references, you can set up Mendeley to continuously import any documents you add to Zotero.
If you currently use Endnote™ or RefWorks for reference management, you can easily import your library into Mendeley:
Mendeley can often read through a PDF and create a record for the item based on the information it finds. You can load files individually or even upload a whole folder of PDFs.
Note: Mendeley will try it's best to create an accurate record from an article. Most PDFs that are directly from the publisher do well, but you should always check for any errors.
You can add files to Mendeley by:
1. Dragging and dropping a pdf into the middle pane of Mendeley
2. You can also add files by selecting file and then clicking add files or folder.
*Note: not all PDFs have information that can be extracted by Mendeley, and sometimes the citation information will be missing, incomplete, or incorrect. You may have to enter citation information manually, search the Mendeley catalog, or enter the DOI, PMID, or ArcXiv ID under Catalog IDs and use the Lookup (magnifying glass).
