In the Building

QR Codes in the Library
Look for QR codes like the one below around the library! These codes embed web links and more in the physical world. Download a QR code reader to your smartphone, snap a photo of the code, and you'll have instant access to the linked info.

QR code

Find a QR code reader by searching your phone’s make and the words “QR Code reader” or visit your phone’s app store. We've tried NeoReader for the iPhone and other systems, and both Barcode Scanner and Google Goggles for Droid, but there are many options.
