Organizing PDFs

Most citation managers can ingest PDFs and allow you to organize them within the tool. For example:

  • Mendeley (cross platform, PDF annotation, re-names PDFs and automatically creates a file structure)
  • Endnote (cross platform)
  • Papers (cross platform)

For advice on organizing your files, visit our personal archiving page. You can also work with your subject librarian to set up a workflow for storing, organizing, and sharing your PDFs. For inspiration, see our Land of 10,000 Workflows blog.
