What's a QR code?

A QR (quick response) code is similar to a barcode. It contains info that can be read by smart phones with cameras, a QR reader app, and web capabilities. Embedded in these codes are web addresses, coupons, messages, or special offers.

You can find a list of QR code readers to download to your mobile device (iPhone, iPod Touch, Android, and more) at http://www.mobile-barcodes.com/qr-code-software/.

How is the Devereaux Library using QR codes?
You can find QR codes all around the library, linking you to Interlibrary Loan resources, the New Bestsellers blog, and lots more! Simply scan the codes with your mobile device and you will have instant access to these services.
