  1. Cool… Med Library has found itself a new home!! I must find time to pay it a visit soon. Interesting entries on the QR codes from NUS. With its potential ease of use for our users, I reckon Libraries would be jumping (or in fact most already had jumped) the bandwagon to harness and incorporate this technology for their Libraries. I foresee in the long run perhaps in a decade or two, this may even change the way in how our users search for resources in our Library holdings (the demise of our traditional OPAC stations???). A quick search on the web yields results showing that quite a number of our overseas Library counterparts had already embraced this technology e.g. Library of Congress http://blogs.loc.gov/loc/2010/09/download-our-iphone-app-the-qr-way/ (last accessed 16 Feb 2012). Well, I wonder if any Libraries has already gathered user feedback and statistics on its usage so far though…
