Accessibility to Electronic Resources Via QR Codes

by Lidia Koelbel 14. June 2012 11:21

What in the name of everything that

 

is legal are these odd looking

 

pictures all over my law library?!

These are signs containing QR codes which you can scan with a smart

phone or iPad.

 

Scanning these codes will link you directly to the electronic book's record

in the Library catalog.

 

All that is left to do is log into your library record and enjoy the

electronic book right there on your mobile device.

 

If you do not have a mobile device, you can still access these titles by

following the link printed below the QR code or searching the catalog by

title.

 

Are cases on Regional Reporters also available electroncially?  It seems

the library only has the Pacific Reporter as far as Regional Reporters.

Yes!  Those cases are conveniently available electronically through

Westlaw and Lexis.  If you are in the Library, you can scan these QR codes

and you will be linked to the Regional Reporters record on the catalog.

 

Have questions and do not want to walk all the way to the Circulation or

Reference areas?  Scan these barcodes and chat with a Librarian. 

Unfortunately, chat will not work on iProducts because you need Flash. 

Flash and iProducts just don't get along.

 

Let us get with the times.  Electronic Resources are here and now!!
