Lo and behold, a QR code!

As I was meandering through my bookmarks looking for something interesting, I opened Project Gutenberg in search of a book to read. Right there, on the homepage, what do I see but a QR Code directing users to the mobile version of the homepage. And then, as I was browsing around, I noticed that on the pages for each individual book, there was a QR code to download the book in whichever format you prefer right to your mobile device. Now, if libraries integrated QR codes into their catalogs so users could place holds easily or search for reader’s advisory tips relating to that book, it would be a good idea.

(PS. I’m not actually obsessed with QR codes, I just seem to notice them more often since the lecture in IST605 and am impressed by the way they are used.)
