QUICK response codes will soon be popping up at libraries and museums across Bournemouth enabling smartphone users to get more information at the touch of a button.

Bournemouth’s library services is one of only 13 successful bids to the arts council, securing £10,000 of funding to launch the technology at points of interest around the town.

QR Codes are scanned by smartphones to automatically access online information related to that item or location.

The QR Code project will initially be piloted at Bournemouth Library at the end of this money with codes attached to various literature collections.

Free training will be provided from July to the public on how this new technology can be used.

Following the pilot, QR Codes will be rolled out across the town, including at public art locations and the Russell-Cotes Museum.
