About QR @ KRRC:
Cell phones are becoming an important aspect of our lives. The comfort and convenience they provide certainly made our lives much easier than ever before. Two brilliant features found in modern cell phones are: the integration of digital cameras and the ability to access the Internet anytime and anywhere, thus, enabling us to seek information when we need it. Nowadays, the built-in digital camera found in cell phones and Internet access can be consolidated to provide a new dimension of information seeking. A user having a camera phone equipped with the correct reader software can scan a two-dimensional (2D) barcode and decode it to launch and redirect a phone’s browser to an embedded URL or to resolve text embedded in the scanned barcode. The benefit of such a feature in modern mobile phones can be further extended to provide effective and potential library services to a new generation students. Offering mobile services has increased the physical use of the library and improves the use of reading material using a technological reference.
With all traditional services like reprography, WebOPAC, Current Awareness Service (CAS), Selective Dissemination of Information (SDI) etc KRRC Library uses QR codes to enhance the library experience of the students by providing interactivity and flexibility.
