Abstract

Barcode is a graphical representation of data on a surfacethat can be read by a machine. Unlike old barcodes, matrix barcodes can store all kind of information in a 2- dimensional pattern. Recently, installing barcode reader applications on mobile phones, has enabled them to read barcodes. Quick Response Code is a two dimensional barcode with several features, it can be scanned and transferred by a smart phone, log in users to a website, start a phone call, and confirm a library card. These codes can be used in libraries as paper-free labels, library ID cards, and for acquiring information from a librarian, library instruction, and also for marketing. The current paper, which applies library study for gathering data, is a review of QR code development history, its structure, capabilities, benefits, challenges and its applications in library and information centers.
