  • While QR codes have been used in Japan since the mid 90s, only recnetly you can see them in use in Canada. You can see these two-dimensional black and white square codes in advertising, print media, movies, video games and in manufacturing. We're experimenting with using QR codes in the Library to connect our physical and virtual collections. While the Library has lots of great books, DVDs and magazines, we also subscribe to many journal article databases, and have useful information on our website.
