QR code for the SABC Media Library's blog

SABC Media Libraries - mobile blog

QR codes is such a fun, easy and practical way to link us to more information.
It is popping up everywhere, and even in South Africa people are beginning to look for that extra bit of information that can be scanned to immediately point us in the right direction.

The possibilities for libraries and archives are endless...

QR codes works with smart phones, and you need a QR code reader installed.
When doing a search on your phone or on the Internet it gives a variety of QR code readers.

I used Kaywa as a Code generator, and I see that it has a Code Reader as well.

I made use of Gwyneth Jones at The Daring Librarian's instructions on How to create a QR code in 3 easy steps. It is under a Creative Commons Licence, and therefore I can share it here as well.

The QR code at the top is a link to the mobile version of this blog.

Scan the code with your Code Reader on your smart phone, and it will take you here:

Please check it out and let us know what you think!
