QR Codes

QR stands for – QUICK RESPONSE

QR Codes can hold information such as url’s, text, GEO coordinates, phone numbers, SMS etc. These codes are beginning to be used in a whole range of environments today eg shop front displays, catalogues, libraries on business cards and much more.

For information on how to read these codes I suggest clicking on the following link and this will take you directly to Jeanette Davies Oliver library support page.

Jeanette has provided a range of links to suitable apps that enable you to be able to read these QR codes from both Mac computers and mobile learning devices eg iPhone ipads.

One of my favourite QR generators is     http://delivr.com/qr-code-generator

My favourite QR readers for iPhone or ipod touch is QR Reader or Qrafter (both are free apps)
