Libraries using QR Codes

For a more detailed page about 2D codes, also known as QR codes, see the page in this wiki for QR Codes. See also the description in Wikipedia and the explanation in CSI on YouTube. Users with a camera phone equipped with the correct reader software can scan the image of the QR 2D Code causing the phone's browser to launch and redirect to the programmed URL.

 

University of Bath Library, United Kingdom is doing a project including QR2D codes in their OPAC. Catalogue records are proviced with these codes. When scanning the code, a map of the library is launched on user's mobiles, helping them to locate the library material in the library building. The university uses QR in their teaching and learning and even blogs on their QR code service.

 

Biblioteca Rector Gabriel Ferraté. Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (BRGF) uses QR Codes to provide additional information on promotional posters and on the web pages, to provide username and password to users who subscribe to theCLIC Area service (a computer classroom), to generate reminders of reservations of the group study rooms library, to fill the suggestion forms or to enrich the contents of the library’s jazz collection. Take a look at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQj3kD0F2uI to know more about one of the QR applications at the BRGF.

 

University of Lethbridge Library uses QR codes on our bookable Group Workroom doors. Scanning the code takes the user into our booking system, where they can immediately book and/or view availability. We also use QR technology in our WebOPAC and promotional posters and materials.

 

Biblioteca i Documentació Científica.Universitat Politècnica de València Qr codes used to give added information to its users (schedules, maps, thematic searches in the catalog...), for self-learning taking users to on-line videos or to promote the blog of literature linking the book with the review.
