We recommend Qrafter, which is free in the App Store. Using Qrafter: • Click the “Scan with Camera” icon and point your iPad toward the QR Code you want to scan. • Once the QR Code is scanned, you can choose to open the URL or to send the link in a message or e-mail. • Qrafter will save a list of scanned URLs for you so that you can return to sites you’ve previously visited.
  20. 20. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury Scan the QR Code to access a copy of Fahrenheit 451 at the Internet Archive website. The Internet Archive is a non-profit organization that was founded to build an Internet library, and to offer permanent access to information for researchers, historians, scholars, and the general public. Does Paper Really Burn at 451 Degrees Fahrenheit? Scan the QR Code to read the Slate.com article by Brian Palmer that addresses this question.

  21. 21. Commonly Challenged books Scan the QR Code to view Butler University Library’s resource guide about books that have been challenged throughout the years. Butler University Library is part of the Butler University Campus in Indianapolis, Indiana. While there are many online resources about challenged books, this resource guide is easy to navigate and full of great information! You probably see quite a few familiar titles on this list. Do any of those titles surprise you? Did any of the reasons the books were challenged surprise you?
  22. 22. Challenged books By the Numbers Scan the QR Code to view the American Library Association’s Office for Intellectual Freedom’s data charts and graphs about challenged books in the U.S. This site uses visual representations of data to show Book Challenges by reason for the challenge, people who often initiate challenges (students, parents, teachers, etc.), and by the type of institution involved (school, public library, etc.). When you look at these charts about challenged books, what do you think? What do you think when you see how often books are challenged in schools and school libraries compared to how often books are challenged in public libraries? Or, compared to prison libraries?
