“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*!
