dc.description.abstractQR (Quick Response) codes were originally developed by Toyota back in 1994 to help them track vehicle parts. In recent years, they have been cropping up everywhere from product advertising to historic landmarks to real estate signs. It turns out that these pixelated square barcodes have all kinds of uses. QR codes allow people to interact with physical objects using an electronic communications device. The recent launch of iPad 2 with it`s excellent choice of e-readers and snappy new built-in camera is the landmark event that led us to start adding QR Codes to our books in the Killam Library at Dalhousie University. We use the Google URL shortening service to create a short URL and QR code that takes users from a print item to an electronic edition in seconds. Check out this poster to find out why we`re doing this, our process for doing so, and how I plan to measure the success of the project.en_US
