Jason Downs, a rep from SWETS, will be in Colorado during the week of Sept 30; he's visiting some of you at your libraries. He's also giving a presentation on SWETS's product, Mendeley Institutional Edition. Presentation is scheduled for Sept 30, at 1 p.m., here at the Alliance, for about an hour. If you'd like to participate, but can't travel here, the presentation will be available through Go-to-Meeting as well. SWETS will provide lunch.
Below is an email from Jason with information about the Mendeley product. I'm also attaching a brochure which describes it, and some FAQs.
Feel free to ask others at your library to participate - this isn't limited to those of you who subscribe to the Prospector list.
Let me know if you or others would like to attend or participate remotely. If you could let me know by Sept 12, I'd appreciate it. If you want to have lunch, let me know that too and if you require a vegetarian option. My contact info is below.

Subject: Mendeley Institutional Edition - Colorado Alliance
Mendeley Institutional Edition<http://www.swets.com/mendeley-institutional-edition>, a crowd-sourced collaborative Reference Management system with over 2.5 million users worldwide that links your institutional members to with one another while accessing their research materials and files. Comparable citation tool to Refworks, Endnote and Zotero, but adds the altmetrics of what your researchers are actually using in and out of your library, as well as how impactful your institutions publications are throughout Mendeley.
This presentation will go over the following topics:
1) Mendeley as a Citation management tool
2) Mendeley as a form of discovery.
3) Mendeley Institutional Group - what is it
4) Altmetrics - What are your researchers citing, publishing, Impact of publications, and what's socially trending.
5) Pricing Structure for the Consortia
As of February 2013, these schools had the following number of Mendeley registered users using their @edu e-mail address.
University of Colorado, Boulder - 911
Colorado State University - 374
University of Colorado, Denver - 326
Colorado School of Mines - 265
(Keep in mind - this is only your @edu email suffixes, add in the Yahoo, Gmal and Hotmal accounts and the actual number of Mendeley users could be as many as 4x the reflected number)
I look forward to presenting this to anyone interested on September 30th, 2013 at 1:00pm
See you then!
