Introducing QR codes


As the Library continuously strive to offer quality service to the Academic Community, the Library now uses QR codes for easier data capture of information about the library and its other available resources.
QR Code for the DLSU Webpage
A QR (Quick Response) Code is a type of barcode that can be read instantly by any camera and Internet-ready mobile device (i.e., smartphones, Android, tablets, iOS such as iPad/iPhone/iPod). You may find a QR code embedded in the print handouts, pathfinders and postings available in the Library. At times, it is also pasted on video/DVD cases, linking the data to mobile-friendly video trailers. QR Codes for the DLSU library website, the OPAC and other LORA accounts in social media (Facebook, Twitter and Skype) are also available.
