Examining Mendeley: Designing Learning Opportunities for Digital Scholarship
Hicks, Alison; Sinkinson, Caroline
portal: Libraries and the Academy, v15 n3 p531-549 Jul 2015
Researchers have widely adopted computer programs for reference management, such as Mendeley, due to their ability to support a variety of research practices, including organization and storage of pdfs. These programs also afford participation and networking within new scholarly information landscapes. This paper uses a survey and semi-structured interviews to explore use of Mendeley at the University of Colorado and to provide an initial snapshot of scholars' adoption of new digital practices. Because these new practices call for different capacities, the authors then used the results to design meaningful learning opportunities for scholars and students.
