After following instructions from Mendeley on creating and exporting bib using bibtex, citations containing URL were incomplete in the bibliography output (url absent). For example:

@article{Cover1998,
author = {Cover, Robin},
file = {:Users/XXXX/Documents/Mendeley Desktop/Cover/Cover Pages/Cover - 1998 - XML and semantic transparency.html:html},
journal = {Cover Pages},
publisher = {OASIS},
title = {{XML and semantic transparency}},
url = {http://xml.coverpages.org/xmlAndSemantics.html http://www.citeulike.org/group/2308/article/1449562},
year = {1998}
}

Results in

Cover, R. (1998). XML and semantic transparency

Welcome to TeX.sx. If you want anybody to help you, please help them by providing a minimal example and point out what you want. –  Marc van Dongen Jan 14 '12 at 10:01

possible duplicate of URL of cited web site in bibliography –  Marco Daniel Jan 14 '12 at 10:12
    
@Nigel_V_Thomas This is not a working example. Check out meta.tex.stackexchange.com/q/228/3240. This is what Marc van Dongen wanted to tell you. We need to see, what style you're using. Because very likely it's a style-dependent issue. –  Thorsten Jan 14 '12 at 10:34
    
Thanks! The solution suggested there is okay, but requires a markup change in bib, by adding note. Instead, a simpler solution based on final suggestion was to switch to using biblatex. Having done this, I can see URL as follows > Robin Cover. “XML and semantic transparency”. In: Cover Pages (1998). URL: http: //xml.coverpages.org/xmlAndSemantics.htmlhttp://www.citeuli ke.org/group/2308/article/1449562 –  Nigel_V_Thomas Jan 14 '12 at 10:37
