Data Sources

Carolina Digital Repository (CDR)

The Carolina Digital Repository (CDR) provides long-term access and safekeeping for scholarly works, datasets, research materials, records, and audiovisual materials produced by the UNC-Chapel Hill community.  The CDR currently supports:

  • Relationships with other repositories.  UNC has built a relationship with BioMed Central to automatically ingest content authored by UNC researchers who only have to deposit their works once.
  • Embargo.  The CDR supports the attachment of an embargo with any future date to a work.  Visitors can see that the document exists but cannot download it until the embargo has passed.
  • Preservation.  The CDR creates multiple copies of an object and monitors them over time to ensure long-term health.
  • Indexing/discovery.  The CDR promotes discovery of works both within the software and via external indexing sites such as Google, Yahoo, and Bing.

If you are interested in depositing materials in the CDR, email and the repository staff will contact you with further detail.

Mendeley Reference Manager

Mendeley is a free reference management system that allows you to collect, manage, cite, create groups, and share research. You can add documents to your research library, make annotations to PDFs and later, using the included add-on, cite the references while writing. Online storage allows you to automatically back up and synchronize your library across desktop, web and mobile versions. Mendeley works with Microsoft Word and insert citations into research papers and create bibliographies from the citations.

Here are a few more ways to add references to Mendeley.

Syncing with Mendeley Online

Saving your Mendeley Library online allows you to access your citations from anywhere.

  • Go to the Mendeley website and sign in to your account
  • Open up your Mendeley Desktop
  • Choose "Sync Files" in your Desktop toolbar
  • Your desktop and your online libraries are now synced, remember to continue to sync the libraries every time you make changes. Syncing is not automatic.

Organize your Mendeley Library

Use tags and folders to keep your library organized. Papers can have multiple tags and be in multiple folders.

To find your papers later:

  • Use the filter menu (on the left) to sort by tags, authors or publications.
  • Use the search box (top right) to search metadata and tags - in one folder, or in all documents.
  • For some files, use the search box to search the full text of an article.  

Organize your document files

Mendeley can automatically rename your PDFs and organize them into folders. Enable this feature in the Desktop settings, or rename individual files.

Cite in MS Word

To install the Mendeley Plugin you need to first close Word and then on Mendeley Desktop go to Tools > Install MS Word Plugin.

Mendeley will appear in MS Word References tab.

For instructions and screenshots, see the Mendeley Library Guide.

Journal Abbreviations for specific citation styles can be found under the "View - Citation Style" menu of your Mendeley desktop toolbar.
