QR Code

LIBstick enables QR code generation as part of the label being produced. The code can be associated to any field from the book attributes, such as the author, title, or publication year that can be used to create a dynamic URL. By embedding these attributes within the QR code, users can enjoy a personalized and tailored experience when scanning the code.

The below example will illustrate how to generate a QR code which, by scanning, will invoke the discovery service for the particular item based on its MMS ID. Using the template of your choice:

  1. Add a new field and select its source as mms_id.

2. Click on “Display as QR”. At this point you’ll need to add the Prefix and Suffix which wraps the MMS ID. For example:

https://MyInstitute.primo.exlibrisgroup.com/discovery/fulldisplay?docid=almaMMS_ID&vid=XXXYYY_INST:XXXYYY_V1

3. Save the template.
