UNB Libraries Goes Mobile

UNB Libraries Goes MobileTry our new UNB LIbraries mobile site!

The mobile site is intended to allow library users with a web-capable, handheld device (e.g. iPhone, iPod Touch, Android, Blackberrys, etc.), to use key features of the library site more easily.

Try catalogue searching using a beta version of UNB’s WorldCat Mobile. Article searching will be added as the mobile catalogue continues to be developed.

Although UNB Libraries Mobile is designed and best suited for use with modern smartphones, you don’t need a handheld device to use the site. It’s available using any web browser at //m.lib.unb.ca. Formatting may vary depending on how you access the site.

Further enhanced versions of the site, which leverage the growing capabilities and personalization options of newer devices, are planned for the following months.

UNB Libraries Mobile QR CodeWondering about the strange graphic?

It’s called a QR (or Quick Response) Code. According to Wikipedia, a QR code is a matrix barcode (or two-dimensional code), readable by QR scanners, mobile phones with a camera, and smartphones. The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on white background.

To use our code, you’ll need a QR reader and camera on your phone. Just point your phone’s camera at the code and you will be transported to our new mobile web page!

If you don’t have a QR reader installed, a listing of suggested QR applications (//percentmobile.com/getqr) is available for your device. Another site lists both UPC barcodes and QR codes (//www.cellphone-barcode.com/qr-code-readers/). Additionally, visit the “App Store” or web site for your device and search for QR Codes. There are free QR Code Readers for almost mobile devices capable of supporting them.
