How do I log in to Mendeley Desktop?


When registering to use Mendeley it is advisable to use a personal email address to create your account.

Firstly this means that you can continue to use your Mendeley account after you have left King's and your King's email has expired.

Secondly there can be problems accessing the desktop version for the first time if you have registered using your King's email address. You may see the error message "It looks like you are trying to sign in using your institution’s Shibboleth account". 

If this happens sign in to Mendeley online and change your King's email address to a personal one. (Click on the drop down menu in the top right-hand corner, and select 'Settings & Privacy'.)
