  53. 53. DTU Library, Technical University of Denmark Time for Questions and Workshop LIVE
  54. 54. DTU Library, Technical University of Denmark One specific question It would be nice to have a discussion on LaTeX/BibTeX integration of Mendeley, as this has always been the area where Mendeley performed fairly badly, even though this is probably one of the top 1-3 priorities for almost all serious academic writers.
  55. 55. DTU Library, Technical University of Denmark And the extra bonus info I promised .... • As a DTU Student, Ph.D. Student or employee at DTU you need to login correct, in order to access licensed materials from Elsevier/Sciencedirect, Springer, IEEE, ACM .. You name it, DTU Library got it, hopefully ;-) • Sometimes you meet these ressources without going through DTU Findit • If so fill in ..globalproxy.cvt.dk after the base URL, and you will be promted with your DTU login, and access to full text is provided if it´s a part of our subscription.. E.g. • http://www.sciencedirect.com.globalproxy.cvt.dk/science/article/pii/S0 167488913004102
