The little laptop that couldn’t

This entry will be a twist on a typical blog posting.   I don’t have much information to share on this topic, instead I’m looking for your commentary.

The question of the day

Have you ever been to a genealogy library or other research facility where you were not allowed entry with a laptop?   I’ve had issues in the past where bags and briefcases were not allowed, I can understand that rule as they are trying to circumvent theft, but a ban on laptops seems a little more unusual.

The topic came up from a Pocket Genealogist user who was pleased because they were able to carry their information on a PDA since they no longer could use a laptop at their favorite library.

Has this ever happened to you?  What’s the policy at your library?
