      Hi Kim

      Mendeley has 2 major differences... it is for conducting academic
      research (it automatically builds bibliographies and allows communities
      to merge and share source materials) plus it runs on all major platforms
      (Evernote is primarily a windows thing with nods to other environments).

      I tried and did not like Evernote... for whatever that's worth. But
      then it takes a lot of hacking to make it work on my platforms.

      Pax Vobiscum,
