  • 1. Quick referencing with QR codesSarah Munks, University of Huddersfield, s.l.munks@hud.ac.ukNicola Howorth, University of Huddersfield, n.howorth@hud.ac.ukRecent research has suggested that the rise in the use of mobile technology isresulting in more and more learning taking place outside the traditional classroom orlecture theatre. Students want more choice with regards to when and how they learnand increasingly want to be able to use their own mobile device to access teachingand learning materials. Using QR Codes is an ideal way of utilising technology toengage and support learners and sits well with the key themes of the conference.Two Subject Librarians at the University of Huddersfield have been working on asmall scale project that uses QR code technology to provide students with textspecific help on referencing, an element of study that students often struggle with. Aspart of the TeachMeet we will demonstrate how QR codes have been used to providetext specific guidance on producing in-text citations and references for two cohorts ofstudents. We will briefly discuss the QR Code referencing project, including how ithas enabled collaboration between Computing & Library Services staff, Academicsand other Support staff at the University.
