EndNote Take Home Option

There is a take home option for faculty and staff. Registered users may make a single copy of the install files for take-home installation.
  1. Users must agree to the License Agreement and become a registered user. Registration is also available through the IS Call Center or the appropriate Information Technology Liaison.  
  2. Windows and Mac files are available via a secured UMKC LAN connection.
