  • Today I want to talk to you about 2 technology tools that I have used with the students at Harrison College, and that can be used to engage your library patrons as well. These tools, as the picture suggests, center around mobile technology, and are 100% free to use!
  • -QR stands for Quick Response-Like barcodes that are found on books in a library, QR codes are scanned, but can hold over 4000 characters at a time-Free to scan and Free to create
  • The 2 most popular (beetagg and kaywa). BeeTagg: offers a reader for all major smart phone platforms, offers a code generator and usage statistics for codes generatedKaywa: also offers a reader and a code generatorQRStuff includes an option for colored QR codesQuikQR has a very simplistic interface
  • The most common items needed
  • This is the argument I continue to hear. What if I don’t have a smart phone? Never fear …
  • A good best-practice is to use bit.ly shortened URLs underneath and within the codes in order for patrons to have access to the code information by way of a computer. Plus – bit.ly URLs, if signed in, provide usage analytics so you can see how many “clicks” or scans there have been.
  • QR codes are being seen in more and more places, but what I have displayed here for you are the common uses within libraries.
  • Probably the most common within libraries-Transliteracy-Now…a book has become interactive!
  • Meet the librarian posters link to welcome videos. Other common uses for posters such as this would be to link the code to your contact information.
  • QR Code is placed at the end of a run of print journals, linking it to the continuation within the online database. I personally have used a similar option, where I have placed QR codes on the bookshelf in the various subject areas, with the code linking to our research guide for that particular subject.
  • Virtual Tours within the library.
  • Scavenger Hunt within this blog post, there’s a link to the scavenger hunt wiki. This can be tailored to fit anyone’s needs!
  • Twitter background includes a QR code linking to the library’s mobile website.
  • This is certainly not all of the uses of QR codes, but it can get you started with some fresh ideas.
  • The last item is poll everywhere – used for audience polling.
  • Ask your question…Get a response…Display your results live via the web, within a power point, or within Apple’s Keynote software. Polls can be either multiple choice or free text, and there are Free accounts for businesses and non-profit organizations that allow up to 30 responses at a time per poll. With that in mind, you might consider polling with the clause: Be one of the 1st 30 people to respond to have your vote count.
  • -We all like to to be heard!-Giving an opinion can boost confidence and can instill a sense of pride in making a difference.-Polling can create discussion when done with a big group at once (like an instruction session).-Using this software provides a super fast and fun way to gain patron opinions, getting instant real time and statistical data.
  • -Poll patrons after a library program to see if they enjoyed it.-Poll patrons after a batch of new arrivals hit the shelves to see what the favorite titles are.-Poll students within classroom instruction sessions to assess what was learned during the lesson.-Poll patrons about certain library services you provide.
  • Press F5 or enter presentation mode to view the poll\r\nIn an emergency during your presentation, if the poll isn't showing, navigate to this link in your web browser:\r\nhttp://www.polleverywhere.com/free_text_polls/NjY5OTU5Njg4If you like, you can use this slide as a template for your own voting slides. You might use a slide like this if you feel your audience would benefit from the picture showing a text message on a phone.
