Sync your library

Sync your Desktop library with your Web library for easy access to your references, independent of your location or the device you are using.

How does Syncing work?

To activate syncing, select Sync in Mendeley Desktop as shown below.

Mendeley library data will be securely stored on the Mendeley servers so you can access it on any machine anywhere you go. Notes and annotations made in groups will also be available to others after clicking Sync.

For further guidance on syncing your library, see Mendeley syncing guidance which includes information about your data privacy.

The next section of this guide will introduce you to Mendeley Web.
