They are free to read their own data, just not able to install any programs from their CD.  Listen to music, yes patrons do it all the time using Windows Media Player.  But they need to bring in their own headphones.

What is your Library's policy regarding a patron's ability to read data stored on their own cds at your public computers? Also do you allow patrons to listen to music on their own cds at the public computers? We do supply headsets for tutorials, etc.

Thanks--any information you supply will be shared with the group.
