Mendeley's sync feature can keep your library up to date on the Web and Desktop versions.  Mendeley stores the Web version of your library on the Mendeley server but you must manually choose to sync the Web version and the Desktop version from your Desktop library by clicking on the "Sync" button.

Portable library

Your Mendeley library is stored in your Mendeley Desktop version on your computer's hard drive, as well as on the Mendeley server (once you sync the Desktop Library). By logging into your account at the Mendeley website, you can access your library at any computer with internet access.
