QR codes

It’s nice to see how far the barcode has evolved. I don’t think I’m that excited about QR codes compared to the next person. Sometimes, being a Computer Science major ruins the fun.

I’ve read a lot about how other people have used these QR codes for scavenger hunt activities in the classroom. This might come in handy in a library online scavenger hunt.

For me, this technology has more value as a marketing tool. There are three things that come to my mind. The first thing I would do is put QR codes on free bookmarks, a link to the library’s website (new arrivals) and a link to book recommendations/reviews. Then I would add them next to books we are displaying/featuring. The QR codes would link students to reviews on the book (hopefully, reviews written by other students). Lastly, I would add them to newsletters to the parents, links to any special activities/events in the library.
