How to log into Elsevier?

Using Mendeley which has links direct to papers held in Elsevier database.

To get the full text I've got to log-in...

is there any way to do this direct from the link or do I have to go back into UTS first?

Dear Sarina,

You don't have to leave Mendeley to log in to library databases to search for the paper you come across while browsing the Mendeley research catalogue.
Mendeley allows you to get the article from UTS library databases right in Mendeley. To do this you need to add this link http://sfx.lib.uts.edu.au/sfx_local

Step 1. Click on the paper you would like to download.

Step 2. Under DOI and "Avaiable from" link, you will see "Find this paper at" button. Choose the last option "Edit library access links" from the drop down menu.

Step 3. On the next page, click on the button that says "Add library manually".

Step 4. enter this url: http://sfx.lib.uts.edu.au/sfx_local (N.B. sfx underscore local)

Step 5. Name the link "UTS Library". Once you have completed this, you will now see "UTS Library" as one of the options when you click on "Find this paper at" button.

This feature links you directly to the full text articles our library has access to.

Best regards,
Yu Lee

Hi Yu Lee, 

Are you talking about Mendeley Web or Mendeley Desktop? I have the metadata (Author-title-year-journal-doi) alread in Mendeley desktop but I can't seem any "available from" links within Mendeley Desktop. I logged onto Mendeley web and looked at the options from within 'My Library" but I can also only see 2 options - email article or view in Mendeley desktop. 

Could you send some more instructions?

Thanks!

Hi Sarina,

I was talking about Mendeley Web.  "Available from" link is not in "My Lirary".  Click on the tab named "papers"; search for papers you would like download (full-text); if you click on the title of any paper, under the citation of the paper, you will see the "available from" link.  Then followed the steps in my previous post. 

Let me know if anything is not clear. 

Best regards,

Yu Lee
