QR Codes are everywhere, on products, at museums, and even on people! But how can you use them at your institution? QR Codes are great ways to get more information to your users, they can be used to link to websites, videos and even contact information. Imagine adding QR Codes to your business cards for faster contact sharing. Link QR codes to books in your library to get more information, or a list of similar books. Even imagine creating a QR code scavenger hunt around your building for new students - the possibilities are endless! In this session we will discuss the ways to create a QR Code as well as how they can be used in and outside of the classroom.
