Emerging technologies like QR Codes and Augmented Reality can help faculty, staff, and librarians extend services, promote resources, and widen access to instructional material to students in exciting and innovative ways. Using simple and free technologies, QR codes can be created easily and embedded almost anywhere. These oddly shaped barcode-like icons are processed by camera phones to direct the user to online websites, videos, or they can simply provide more information. Augmented reality takes existing visual or video information and adds additional layers of computer-generated graphics, pattern recognition, and other visual effects. This session will highlight how other academic institutions are using these technologies
to promote market, outreach, teach, and engage with users in new and exciting ways. There will also be time for participants to discuss present and future applications of these tools, and other possible uses for enhancing resources and services in their institutions.
