QR code (abbreviated from Quick Response Code) is the trademark for a type of matrix barcode (or two-dimensional barcode) first designed for the automotive industry in Japan. A barcode is a machine-readable optical label that contains information about the item to which it is attached. A QR code uses four standardized encoding modes (numeric, alphanumeric, byte/binary, and kanji) to efficiently store data; extensions may also be used .

Options in System Utilities
There are three options:
Include Full Record–You can include detailed resource information.
The QR Codes will contain details of the selected resource. This can be useful when collecting information about certain resources (i.e. when building a bibliography).
Include only the URL– Just the URL link.
The QR Codes will only contain the URL assigned to the resource; if none is stored for that resource then nothing will be displayed. When scanned, the corresponding app will ask if you want to open the target URL in a browser or copy the link (depending on the specific app used).
Do NOT display QRcodes– Disable the display of QR Codes.
