The University of Utah Libraries have embraced QR (‘quick response’) codes as a means of delivering additional information to patrons via their mobile device. QR codes are two dimensional codes that can be scanned with a mobile device’s camera and a reader application to link to various resources such as a URL, application, or video. This presentation will introduce QR codes and explore how they can allow libraries to connect faculty, students and visitors to the information they want at the point of need. The libraries on campus are currently using them to link to Web sites, access digital learning objects, promote classes, and guide users to specific library locations. Participants will learn how to use and create their own QR Codes in class. Come learn about the next generation bar codes and see how they can be useful to you!
