This application can be used to interpret QR and ISBN barcodes. Scanning the ISBN of a book will look for the item in the Toronto Metropolitan University Library & Archives (RULA) catalogue to see if it is available.
Scanning a QR code will interpret the data and display the results on screen or if the data contains a URL, it will launch that website. QR codes are now available in the Library catalogue.
The RULA brains behind this application recently won the OLITA Award for Technical Innovation for 2011 – congratulations to Graham McCarthy, Innovative Technologies Librarian, and Steven Marsden, Junior System Programmer!
