Mendeley has two access points - the desktop client and the web-based client.
The Desktop Client is installed on your device. If you work from multiple devices, e.g. a lab computer and a personal laptop, you can download a copy of the desktop client (freely) on each device and "sync" the libraries to keep them concurrent.
The Web-Based Client is online and accessible from any web browser. When you sync, the web-based client updates as well. Visit www.mendeley.com to sign-in and access your library.
