Empowering libraries and delivering new tools to researchers:
Mendeley Institutional Edition Powered by Swets goes live
Mendeley Institutional Edition (MIE) is for academic institutions and research groups, who want to provide improved services to researchers. The MIE is a research service provided by libraries that improves the productivity of researchers, and gives the library the real-time visibility they need to continuously improve their services. Unlike alternative products that only provide pieces of the solution, our service delivers clear value to both libraries and their customers.
The Mendeley Institutional Edition combines a premium version of the leading Mendeley research worktool, that gives the most productive integrated combination of reference management, research content discovery and collaboration; and give libraries the unique analytics that lets them connect content use with consequent research publications and the readership of these publications. These analytics also help the library identify how to continuously improve their services. This is a cloud based real time platform.
“The success and continued rapid growth of Mendeley to date has already delivered a fantastic new tool for researchers” said David Main, CEO at Swets, “This new service delivered by libraries gives an premium service to researchers and gives libraries the conection to researchers and their activities that they need in this digital world”.
Speaking of the launch, Victor Henning, Managing Director of Mendeley said, “With our cloud based tool, librarians will have a deeper visibility and understanding of their own content use and the impact of their research output. Mendeley Institutional Edition helps provide this and we’re delighted to be working with Swets to open up and increase the visibility of this data. In addition, it will help them build private collaborative groups for their students, researchers and professors to network and share their knowledge.”
