Engaging Your Community with QR Codes. Long Island continuing education presentation

by Joe Murphy Librarian on May 23rd, 2011

I got the chance to speak again about the timely topic of QR Codes, this time for a group of library staff as part of the Long Island Library Resource Council’s (LILRC) continuing education events.

From the program: QR codes are emerging as a mobile technology to bridge the digital and physical worlds. This workshop covers the basics of QR codes—what they are, how to make them, how to use them, what resources are necessary, etc. It then moves onto creative ways communities are using them to engage their audience within and beyond libraries—scavenger hunts through town, learning to use the academic library, marketing, and information delivery. It covers the new opportunities for libraries that QR codes represent: expanding concepts of resource discovery, facilitating patron use of mobile devices to connect with the library and its resources, and renewing/re-imagining uses of library space. Join our active QR guru and learn everything you need to know about QR codes and libraries: their applications, the practical steps and concerns, and the technical aspects of leveraging this exciting new technology.

PPT for this presentation is available online

This is my second time speaking at the wonderful Sachem Public Library. I had the pleasure of visiting in 2009 to present about Twitter, and had the honor of presenting at another LILRC event about Mobile Literacy held at the Plainview-Old Bethpage Public Library.
