      BESIDES...
      • Users love mobile phones
      • More than 90% of us keep our cell phones within arm’s reach 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
      • More than 70% of us actually take our cell phones to bed with us.
      • Over 70% of us now use our cell phones as alarm clocks.
      • A study by Unisys revealed that if we lose our wallet, we report it missing in 26 hours. If we lose our cell phone, we report it missing in 68 minutes. (Darwill.com)
      • It is interactive and very simple to use
      • Curiosity

      IDEAS?
    • QR CODES IN LIBRARIES
      • Provide point-of-use instruction at point-of-need locations;
      • Have step-by-step instructions on machines like photocopiers and printers.
      • Post QR codes by study rooms. Students would be able to check the availability of a study room, and then book it from their cell phone while standing in front of the room.
      • QR codes in the stacks could bring up a list of LibGuides 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 around campus could link to digital libraries or items from special collections related to the different buildings.

      • 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 Maps – Instead of just a map that has, Reference, Reserve, Computer Lab on it, put QR codes for every area that has a web page, so that the patron can go directly to that web page for more information.
      • Library reviews – if someone has done a review on a book or item, a QR code can be put on that item, linking to the review.

      But...Some points that librarians should take into account:
      • Not all patrons might be are aware of them;
      • Not all patrons might have the required devices and software;
      • Main information still need to be provided in a conventional way (it is not just a question of clean and minimalist information design);
      • The efficient display of the information need to be constantly checked;
      • Effective pedagogical uses of QR codes
      • Accessibility to disable people?
    • DEMONSTRATION
      Lets try!
      In pairs or groups of three
      Take one Smartphone
      Access: http://www.mobile-barcodes.com/qr-code-software/ or http://www.qread.mobi/
      Check which software is more appropriate to your Smatphone Model
      Follow the steps to download it
    • DEMONSTRATION
      Now use your creativity!
      Think about a possible application to libraries (eg. special, public, university, school)
      Access: http://qrcode.kaywa.com/
      Create your QR Code
      Save the image
      Post your QR Code at the LMS (605 QR CODES topic) with a brief
      description of the idea
      6. Lets check the QR Codes!
