One response to “testing QR codes

    I’ve been trying to get QR-codes for my website but I can’t understand how to do it. Did you use a generator for this?

    RESPONSE: I am using the Google Charts API at http://code.google.com/apis/chart/ which was pretty easy to figure out.

    To make a 200×200 QR code for our library website, for example, I simply add the website URL (http://libweb.uoregon.edu) to the end of this string in the browser’s address bar:

    http://chart.apis.google.com/chart?chs=200×200&cht=qr&chl=http://libweb.uoregon.edu

    Loading the page then generates an image in the browser window that can be printed, copied and pasted into other documents, etc. Hope this helps!
