How do I install EndNote if my computer asks me for an admin password?

You can only install EndNote Desktop on PCs, laptops and other devices for which you have administrator rights. 

You should be able to install EndNote on up to 3 of your own, personal devices without needing to enter an admin password.

If you are using a PC or laptop supplied/maintained by Queen's for which you have not been given admin rights, you should contact your local (i.e. school, centre or department) IT team to take forward the installation process. Alternatively, contact the main IT Help Desk: 

If you are using a PC in a Queen's student computing centre (SCC), you will not be able to install EndNote, nor will IT or the Library be able to install it for you, so you will need to install/use EndNote Desktop on a personal device instead.
