Tuesday, May 24th–Over 30 librarians from public and academic institutions gathered for LILRC’s latest workshop on emerging technology, Engaging Your Community with QR Codes, which was lead by Joe Murphy, Librarian at Yale University.
This presentation explored what QR codes are, how they are being used, and library applications. Through discussion and the use of videos, Joe demonstrated how libraries can engage their audience within and beyond libraries–including such examples as scavenger hunts within and outside of the library, learning to use the academic library, marketing, information delivery and much more.
