Q. I was wondering if you know whether I can easily share pdfs that I have uploaded into my Mendeley Library?

  • Private Groups
  • Private Groups are designed to allow small teams to work together. The number of members is limited but allow the full text of reference materials (such as PDFs) to be shared between members.

  • Private groups you’ve joined will be indicated with a safe icon in Mendeley Desktop.
