  By installing the EndNote software I agree:

  • If I leave the University (by cessation of matriculation or termination of employment) I will discontinue use and uninstall the software.
  • I may install the software on personal machines, including laptops, and home machines.
  • The software may be installed on a network server as well as on other computers owned or operated by the University of Georgia over an internal network at the authorized site(s).
