  • I use Mendeley to organise my research papers, you can organis your PDF library by title/author/date/ect…, and Mendeley automatically enters this information into the program. Once you upload your PDFs into Mendeley desktop they are  accessible  online from any computer! I also use it to organise the Fish 101 lecture notes (you can also highlight and use sticky notes)
