Connecting the physical and digital in teaching, learning and research.
Colourful and exciting QR codes have been placed around our Libraries to enhance user experiences of the Library. If you see a QR code in the Library simply scan it using the camera on your mobile phone to learn more about UTS Library services, facilities and resources.
What is a QR Code?
- a QR code is a square barcode that can hold lots of information
- it can be scanned by the camera in a mobile device
- it can lead you to websites, contact details, videos, quizzes, PDFs, demonstrations, slides and more
How are we using them?
- on our bookmarks and brochures so people can watch a demo rather than read text instructions
- on promotional posters linking to online news and services
- linking to existing online resources such as the Library orientation program
- creating new content such as a video about the new Open Reserve area or how to use the self service loans machines
- providing immediate access to digital content anytime, anywhere without the need to wait for a computer
- does your phone have WiFi capability and a camera?
- if so, connect to the UTS wireless network for free* access while on campus - UTS-WPA.
- download a QR code reader. For example visit i-nigma website using your mobile phone (which supports a wide range of platforms) and follow the installation steps.
* On campus you can access free WiFi but if you're somewhere that doesn't have free WiFi beware of data charges from your phone provider.
