More about QR Codes

The October issue of School Library Journal has two short articles about QR Codes and libraries.

  • QR Codes in the Library: Use 2-D Barcodes to Offer the Coolest Service Ever
    "Libraries can use QR codes to deliver a higher level of support and interactivity to patrons. Even better, the technology’s a snap to implement at little or no cost." -- SLJ, Christopher Harris, 10/1/2010

  • QR Codes Connect Students to Books
    "QR codes captured Schumacher's attention because of what students could create and link to in a school library setting. One library he found on YouTube, he says, created QR codes for students and showed how they could link to reviews, videos and even podcasts about the books." -- SLJ, Lauren Barack, 9/14/10

I've not had much feedback on my QR code literature rack, but have hopes it is catching students attention as they retrieve print-outs, staple, punch holes, and make copies at the print station.
