BiblioTECH can display two dimensional QR Codes
"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" .
These are displayed in:
- Resource Manager while editing a catalogue record.
- Search on the Detail panel.
- Web Search on the Detail page.
These can then be scanned using a suitable app on a mobile phone, tablet, etc.
Open BiblioTECH System Utilities, then select the Resource Management --> General Parameters.
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.
This will turn the display of QR Codes off.
