I am sure many of us have now heard about the world of QR codes, and have witnessed the introduction of them into many elements of our everyday life. The West Midlands Museums Development Officer network (WMMDO) recently conducted a short scoping excercise looking at how QR codes are used in the museums and heritage sector and to find answers to the following questions:
- What is the current use of QR codes by museums in the West Midlands?
- Which types of museums are using QR codes?
- What do museums want to achieve by using QR codes?
- Why aren’t some museums using QR codes?
- What help and support do museums need to use them?
A selection of museums and heritage sites across the West Midlands were interviewed for this report. The results from the consultation were a varied from the surprising, to the not so surprising.
