QR codes leverage the power of smartphones to connect digital data to real-world surfaces.
The first presentation demonstrates the simple steps needed to make QR codes
and explains how university libraries have used QR codes to collocate disparate collections
and shed light on unique items while generating usage statistics. The second presentation
shares case studies of how libraries can engage patrons and bridge the gap
between print and electronic materials via QR codes. Bloechle provides tips and best
practices to help libraries market their valuable electronic resources using QR codes.
