I did two short presentations on QR codes at InfoCamp and at an ILS user group meeting. I wanted to do a slick presentation with Prezi, but ran out of time to make it work well, so I just presented with images on slides.
Several people have asked for the slides, which are a bunch of images without any context or other content. Here’s a list of links that might be more useful.
QR codes — General
The Big Wild – an online conservation movement, sponsored by MEC and CPAWS, where people sign online petitions to protect Canadian wilderness. Big Wild recently launched a poster campaign utilizing QR codes.
Ethical Bean – by scanning the QR code on the bag of coffee, consumers can learn more about where their coffee was grown.
Rollout – company that designs and digitally prints custom wallpaper, created QRious Paper.
Code Unique – a hotel that is being built in Dubai where the building itself is a QR code
QR codes — Libraries
University of Bath Library – QR codes in their catalogue at the item level. Scanning these dynamically generated QR codes brings up the type of information that users generally have to jot down on a piece of paper: call number, shelving location, title and author. Kate Robinson presented on this at the m-Libraries conference last year.
