Curious about QR codes? Apprehensive about the potential use of mobile apps? This session will explain some of the ways mobile technologies can be used to support library services including mobile access to resources; using QR codes around the library; and using mobile devices to support roving enquiries. Whether you are a complete novice to mobile technologies or are already using them, the session should give you some new, low cost ideas to try out at your library and introduce you to the work of the JISC-funded m-library community support project.
