Import the bibliographic details of books and book sections to Mendeley

While it's very easy to import bibliography of articles from databases, Google Scholar, the publisher's websites or by using the PDF files (drag & drop), the import of books and book sections details is not always intuitive. In order to make the import you can add references manually or use one of theses two options:

Using a catalog and the Web Importer:

You can use the Technion Library's search engine in order to obtain books and use the Mendeley web importer accordingly:

you can use other catalogs as well, especially when the library's search engines failed to retrieve the desired item. In such case it is most recommended to use an international library catalog such as worldcat.

Import details from the publisher's website (excellent for book chapters):

Go to the publisher's website and find your book version. Then, click on the web importer and it will be delivered to your mendeley account as a book bibliography. If the material is an Ebook, mendeley should identify the different chapters, which may help your citation to be more accurate:
