Have you been wanting to learn more about Mendeley? In their most recent newsletter they highlighted there new suite of instructional videos.
Jonathan Koffel also shared this link on the PIM Blog (Personal Information Management). If you're like me and haven't yet added it to your RSS Feed reader it looks like it's full of good tips and info on tools that might be useful for our instruction.
You can view all the Mendeley Videos on their website.
