The University Libraries are happy to announce that we are implementing a new tool, Quick Response Codes, that will assist you in tracking materials that you want to find in the Libraries.

QR codes are two-dimensional barcodes that are readable by dedicated QR barcode readers and camera equipped smart phones. When scanned by a reader or smart phone, the QR codes in the University Libraries' Catalog display the first part of an item's title, its location, call number, and status.

In order to make use of QR Codes, you need a smart phone with a camera and a barcode reading application. Barcode scanning applications are available for iPhone, Blackberry, and Android systems.
