Hi, I’m a librarian
Hi, I’m an archivist
and we put QR codes on things
Today we’re going to go to an academic library. Nothing has QR codes on it.
But you know what we’re gonna do? We’re gonna put QR codes on things.
Spruce it up! Make it pretty!
Put a QR code on it!
I’m putting a QR code on this sign. It’s a QR code! QR codes just magically make everything modern and relevant.
Look at this sad little doc box. I know! I’ll put a QR code on it!
Did you see this box before? I didn’t. Now there’s a QR code! It’s user-friendly! It’s informative!
I’m putting a QR code on a QR code that links to a Libguide about QR codes.
