Navigating the Harvey Richards Media Archive can be challenging given the depth and complexity of our offerings. The QR code is a means of short cutting the navigation with a single click that takes you directly to a subject you want to explore. While the links on this and other posts do the same thing, the QR code gives mobile devices a direct path to a subject and allows sharing with other mobile devices.
How QR codes work: All that is needed is a free QR code reader app (for Android or Mac) which uses the camera on your phone to read the QR code. The code takes you directly to a website or video playback site. The QR code can be read directly off the computer screen or printed out and read from the paper copy. It takes only a few minutes to set it up and then it opens up a whole new world of instant information and exploration on the web.
