Creating a Bibliography in Your Mendeley Library

To view your item collections as bibliographies in your Mendeley Desktop library:

  • Select View in the menu at the top of your Mendeley Desktop version, and in the drop down menu select "Library as Citations"
  • Also in the View drop down menu, select "Citation Style" and then choose a style.
  • If you prefer to view your Collections in table format, return to the View menu, and choose "Library as Table".

Mendeley-Select View- Select Library as  Citation from drop down.

NOTE: You can also just drag and drop your references from the Mendeley Desktop Center Panel into your document.  They'll turn into fully formatted citations. This works with most word processors including Google Docs.
