Use of Laptop Computers
The Library does not maintain typing facilities or lend equipment to researchers.
Word processing software and other similar applications are not available on
the Library's public workstations. Laptop or other portable personal computers
may be used in designated areas of the Main
Reading Room and the Science Reading
Room. Other kinds of word processors, typewriters, voice recorders, cellular
phones, beepers, and other portable electronic devices that might disturb researchers
are not permitted in the general reading rooms. Researchers should check in
advance with the various reading rooms for their
policies on portable computers and other personal property in the reading rooms.
