Last Updated: Jun 18, 2015 09:09AM BST

The desktop library expands upon the features of the online library, and is essential in order to take full advantage of colwiz. The desktop library is free to download for Windows, Mac and Linux (click to view installation guide).

Through the desktop library you get the following extra features:

  • Import references directly from existing reference managers (eg: Zotero, Mendeley, CiteULike)
  • Import from BibTeX, RiS, XML, and PDF files
  • Cite references in MS Word, Open office, LaTeX and more
  • Search and add references from over 30 of the largest publishers in-app
  • Export references in BiBTeX, RiS and XML formats
  • Automatically fetch publicly available PDFs for your references
  • Enable watch folder to automatically fetch PDFs from a folder in your system

Once the installation file has downloaded, open it and follow the installation prompts. During the installation, the desktop library and the colwiz citation plugin for MS Word will be installed on your system.
