May Metronet Wind-Down
You’ve probably seen QR Codes, and maybe you’ve even scanned a QR Code with your smartphone, but have you thought about using them in your library?
Join us for our next Metronet Wind Down…
QR Codes in Action!
Tuesday, May 17, 4-5:30pm
Minneapolis Community & Technical College Library, Room L1200
On-street parking or use the MCTC parking garage at 1420 Hennepin Ave S
“I like QR Codes because they are this weird amalgam of analog and digital. They're like a universal a-to-d converter, whether the analog part is a page in a magazine, an image on a monitor, or a ginormous tag on a billboard hundreds of feet away.”--Glenn Fleishman
QR Code use is quickly growing. You can find QR Codes in magazines, at light rail stops, and increasingly in libraries. Whether you are familiar with their use or would like to learn more, we hope you join us at the QR Code Wind Down.
Jenny Sippel and John Daniels of Minneapolis Community & Technical College will present the what, why and how of QR Codes. They will give a tour of QR Code use at MCTC Library and will leave plenty of time for discussion. Bring your questions, experience, and mobile device*!
