2D Barcode Training Session

The vendor that the college will be using to incorporate 2D barcodes and SMS tags in its ads/announcements, instruction, and student social networking will be on campus next week. I can schedule a joint session with BCTC and library staff for the morning of Friday, December 11. Librarians who are interested should let me know. I will post more information as soon as procurement process is completed.
