QR codes - Pinterest Board created for libraries and librarians by 23 Mobile Things | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

"QR Codes ("Quick Reference" Codes) are essentially 2-dimensional barcodes. They can contain hundreds of times more data than conventional 1-dimensional barcodes. Initially created for use in the shipping industry, they are gaining popularity for marketing to people with smart-phones." Source: Library Success: A Best Practices Wiki

Karen du Toit's insight:

Great resource for QR codes!

Email on the go - Week 3 of ANZ 23 Mobile Things - online learning for librarians #anz23mthings

Email on the go - Week 3 of ANZ 23 Mobile Things - online learning for librarians #anz23mthings | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

Linda Moore:

According to the Australian Mobile Phone Lifestyle Index, 60% of Australian mobile phone users use their phone access emails at least once a week[1]. So there’s a fair chance that if you have a mobile device you’ve already set up your email and checked it occasionally. But as I discovered this week there is much more to mobile email than the email client your phone comes with. If nothing else I encourage you to download and try some of the email apps out there – after trying the Gmail app I won’t be going back to the iPad email app again!

Karen du Toit's insight:

Mobile email - week 3 of the Australian and New Zealand librarians doing the 23 Mobile Things course - available online, free, and open worldwide!

Twitter explained for novices and on, run by ANZ Mobile 23 Things

Twitter explained for novices and on, run by ANZ Mobile 23 Things | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

"Welcome to the 1st mobile thing: Twitter.

As a long time twitter user, I was under the impression that I knew it all.  All about how to use hashtags, search, messages and more.

I was wrong.  I found various things I didn’t know and am encouraged that it is a great sign for how much more I am going to learn over the next 23 weeks.

Many of you will be using Twitter for the first time, welcome.  We would love it if you would follow us on@anz23mthings and use the hashtag #anz23mthings on your posts.

So let’s talk about twitter."

Karen du Toit's insight:

Great info on using Twitter for professional development!
