In an engineering economics class, I created a QR code that I included on the library assignment worksheet. At the beginning of the class, after I introduced myself and told the class what we would be learning, I asked if anyone knew what the square mark at the top of the worksheet was. Almost immediately several students said "a barcode!" I asked if anyone had scanned it and they had. The code led them to the LibGuide for the class assignment. This made a great icebreaker for the class and an effective way to link the worksheet to the LibGuide.
