English abstract

QR codes are beginning to be introduced in our libraries and are an easy way to give additional information to mobile web users in a given time and place. In this paper, we share the experience and give some examples of the introduction and use of QR codes at the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) Libraries in Spain.We describe how we use QR codes to give access to our mobile website, to download documents and to promote our literature blog.We also describe how we promote our QR codes to both users and librarians, including some best practices. Finally,we discuss our future projects, such as the use of QR codes for information literacy.
