New Mobile App wins Award!

OLITA Technological Innovation AwardIn the bookstore? Need to quickly see if the Library has the book you want? The Ryerson University mobile app on iOS and Android now includes the ISBN/QR barcode scanning application.

This application can be used to interpret QR and ISBN barcodes. Scanning the ISBN of a book will look for the item in the Ryerson University Library & Archives (RULA) catalogue to see if it is available.

Scanning a QR code will interpret the data and display the results on screen or if the data contains a URL, it will launch that website. QR codes are now available in the Library catalogue.

The RULA brains behind this application recently won the OLITA Award for Technical Innovation for 2011 – congratulations to Graham McCarthy, Innovative Technologies Librarian, and Steven Marsden, Junior System Programmer!
