Sync Mendeley with Zotero to Share Annotations

I just set up the Mendeley account and sent a group invite, but I don’t think my idea to share annotations will work.

That’s because I know it’s basically impossible to install new software on a Fed computer –

The idea might still be helpful because you can use the Mendeley web site to get your hands on all the journal articles I collected for this project.

It looks like my “highlighted text” (created on my Mac with the Preview app) was preserved, but the Mendeley software mis-interpreted my “highlights” in the saved PDF as “yellow background color.” That makes my highlighted text practically impossible to distinguish from normal white background. It looks like I should use Adobe PDF reader if I want to make annotations that are easily readable on a PC.

About Tanner Jessel

I am a recent M.S. in Information Science graduate from the University of Tennessee School of Information Science. I was formerly a graduate research assistant funded by DataONE (Data Observation Network for Earth). Prior, I worked for four years as a content lead and biodiversity scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey's Biodiversity Informatics Program. Building on my work experience in biodiversity and environmental informatics, my work with DataONE focused on exploring the nature of scientific collaborations necessary for scientific inquiry. I also conducted research concerning user experience and usability, and assisted in development of member nodes with an emphasis on spatial data and infrastructure. I assisted with research designed to understand sociocultural issues within collaborative research communities. Through August 1, 2014, I was based at the Center for Information and Communication Studies at the University of Tennessee School of Information Science in Knoxville, Tennessee.
