What else are QR codes used for? They can guide us to websites, videos, quizzes, PDF’s, tutorials and slideshows. Library application of QRs are endless. We could place QR codes around the library directing you to information about certain sections, such as reference, history, home economics or science. Some of our more popular books can be labeled with QR codes. The code would display a synopsis of the book, naming other similar books you may find useful. What’s more, you could scan various codes in the library to download a MP3 audio tour of our different resources and sections.
