Smart Phones in Libraries, Know about the book without touching it

Respected Patron:

Greetings from NGL Open Source

Your users would like to have a glance about New Arrivals before Checking out them. Also, some libraries display New Arrivals in special shelves. Users can only see the display items but cannot access them. One has to search for the details of the items using an OPAC terminal.

NGL Open Source makes the task very simple to the users. The users having Smart phones can immediately access the details of the new arrivals by focusing their phone camera on the item. Thats it, they have the details of the book (new arrival) on their Smart Phone.

How it works?

The magic is QR Codes.

NGL now presents a functionality to print QR Codes. Using NGL WorkBench QR Codes for new arrivals can be printed. In fact you can print QR Codes for any catalogue record.

Printing QR codes can be as simple(and cheap) as printing them on A4/Letter papers using a Laser/Ink-jet printers.

These QR Codes can be stuck in an area before the book. Once the user focuses the Smart Phone camera to the QR Code, the browser of the Smart Phone will immediately open  catalogue record details of the book. The web page containing the details of the catalogue details is customized for Smart Phone browsers.
