  • MAKING TAGS
    START WITH A QR CODE GENERATOR
    Google URL Shortener: http://goo.gl/ + .qr (allows you to monitor analytics)
    http://delivr.com/ (preformatted “flyers” - take seconds to create)
    http://invx.com/
    http://goqr.me/
    http://www.mobile-barcodes.com/qr-code-generator/
    http://www.qrstuff.com/(pick a color to customize your code)
    http://qrcode.kaywa.com(choose a size for your finished code)
    SAVE THE QR CODE AS AN IMAGE
    USE IT IN WHATEVER DOCUMENT, POSTER, FLYER, BOOKMARK, STICKER OR TATTOO YOU’RE CREATING

    Technology to inform
  • QR CODES IN LIBRARIES
    • Mobile technology can enhance student learning, and it’s something students want!
    • 65-70% Mill River students have mobile devices capable of getting to the web, according to my very unsophisticated surveying
    • Speak Up 2010-11 Data – nationwide, 44% of students in grades 9-12 have smart phones
    • not impacted by socio-economic indicators (urban vs. rural, Title 1 or Free and Reduced Lunch)
    • Research by Ball State University’s Institute for Mobile Media Research indicates that the use of cell phones is nearly universal on college campuses – 99.8 %
    • 49 % of college students use a smart phone

    Microsoft’s Tag works much the same way as a QR Code, but Microsoft’s proprietary software is necessary to create and decode the tags

  • QR CODES IN LIBRARIES
    • Provide point-of-use instruction at point-of-need locations.
    • Link to book trailers or read-alikes right from the book itself.
    • Post QR codes by study rooms. Students would be able to check the availability of a study room, and then bookit from their mobile device.
    • QR codes in the stacks could bring up a list of pathfinders on topics related to books in the call number range area.
    • QR codes in the stacks could show where the ebooks would be on the shelves.
    • QR codes in catalog systems to allow patrons to snap and save books of interest.
  • QR CODES IN LIBRARIES
    • Direct users to a service that’s specifically aimed at mobile device users, such as a chat, text or IM reference service, or the mobile version of the library’s catalog or databases.
    • QR code to the online Ask a Librarian site could be posted at the physical reference desk and at all public access computer workstations.
    • Library tours – QR codes can be placed in different areas of the library so visitors can access information relevant to that particular space. Audio tours can also be provided this way.
    • Library or school maps – Instead of just a map that has locations on it, put QR codes for every area that has a web page, so that readers can go directly to that web page for more information.
  • QR CODES IN LIBRARIES
    • Link to a Phone numberon a web page so students don’t have to dial the number on their phone.
    • Link to a web page associated with an event by placing a QR code for the web page on the event's poster.
    • QR Codes can be posted at desks to advertise serviceslike laptop checkout, account access, and online resources.
    • Librarians can tag pre-formatted, tailored searchesfor events and exhibits.
    • Add QR codes to posters, flyers, and other library instructional or promotional materials.
    • Link to audio books or electronic books to allow patrons instant access anywhere.
  • QR CODES IN LIBRARIES
    Contra Costa Country Library (CA) partnered with the local public transit authority to mount promotional posters in all vehicles. Patrons simply snap the code and are ready to listen to one of more than 600 audiobooks in the library’s collection. CCCL also provides QR Code access to their Text-a-Librarian service, their read-alike database and more.

  • QR CODES IN LIBRARIES
    More thought required?
    • Not all students are aware of QR codes
    • Not all students will have the required devices and software
    • Information still needs to be provided in a conventional way
    • Effective pedagogical uses of QR codes?
