Have you seen our QR Codes?

These are some of the codes posted in the Library to help you get service at a printer, ask a reference question when the Reference Desk or the Library is closed, find citation style guides online quickly, among others.

You need a smart phone or tablet computer with a camera, and an app for reading the codes. Several apps are available for downloading.

Open the app, point your camera at the code, and you’ll be sent to a web page or phone number. VoilĂ !

    Great Ideas for using QR Codes. Can you make the images in your posts or email them to me. I am in the process of preparing a presentation on how libraries use QR Codes and I would like to use them as an example.
