QR codes in printed guides

Feverishly adding QR codes to printed guides now, linking to online quizes, videos and further help...

For instance I've added a quiz to my Law resources guide.

Hopefully people will see these strange things at the bottom of the printed guides and some will investigate. We'll see if it works!

Starting to stick QR codes around the library

Starting to stick QR codes around the library now ready for the start of term, though don't want too many up when there are still changes likely before the end of summer!

All the print journals now have QR codes linking to SFX to find electronic holdings.

Print credit machine has link to video on using it - though not sure now whether to stay with MoleTV or go with Youtube.

Hopefully sticking up some of the general "help" type ones later today - linking to "text a librarian" service for the fixed library catalogue points, for instance.

QR codes article

Just had a short article published on QR codes in Library Hi Tech News.

It's called simply Quick response codes and libraries - one of two short pieces I was asked to write after the editor heard my talk at LILAC 2009.
