Mendeley Update: Migration to the Institutional Edition

As we progress with our transition to Mendeley, our site-wide referencing software package, we will be migrating to Mendeley Institutional Edition (MIE). This means that anyone with a Mendeley account with an email/username ending in ‘’ will be moved automatically onto the new MIE. This process will commence week beginning 3rd April.

What does this mean in practice? You will not notice any change to your Mendeley account, it will look and remain the same. However, the MIE gives you additional, hidden benefits summarised below:

  • increased personal storage space (from 2GB to 100GB)
  • improved shared Library storage space (from 100MB to 100GB)
  • ability to set up unlimited private groups of up to 100 collaborators
  • alumni access
  • greater customer support service

These enhanced features make Mendeley a more effective collaborative tool and a useful resource for researchers. Full details on MIE can be found at:

If for any reason you do not want your personal account or group migrated to MIE please contact your Academic Librarian:
