Poster Board Number: 116
Title: Mobile Delivery: Using Quick Response Codes to Access Information at the Point of Need
Objective: This poster covers the use of quick response (QR) codes to provide instant mobile access to information, digital collections, educational offerings, the library website, subject guides, text messages, videos, and personnel in the library. The authors explain the array of uses and the value of using QR codes to push customized information to patrons.
Methods: The authors will develop the case for using QR codes for mobile delivery of customized information to patrons. In addition to the obvious uses, such as linking to course listings, course registrations, and subject guides, QR codes can be utilized to direct patrons to digital collections; to deliver personalized, private consumer health and patient information services; and to encourage participation in clinical trials. By creating custom queries to specific topics in specialized digital collections, libraries can lead patients and patrons to unique materials specific to their diseases or disorders. Clinical trials can be advertised and linked to contact information, which can be snapped and stored on a mobile phone. Sensitive information can be delivered in complete privacy by posting QR codes with links to high-quality resources in classrooms, restrooms, and hallways.
Results and Conclusions: My results and conclusions are not complete yet.
Authors: Nancy T. Lombardo, Associate Director, Information Technology; Jeanne Marie Le Ber, Associate Director, Education and Research; Justin Barbour, Assistant, Education and Information Technology; Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library; University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT
