This paper presents a feasible and effective solution for solving the document information retrieval (DIR) problem for both paper and electronic documents using the quick response code (QR Code). The two dimensional QR Codes provide much bigger data storage then traditional one dimensional barcodes, more document information can be embedded for making offline document processing possible. The document information is proposed to be stored into the QR Code in XML format for maximum portability and integration with other document processing systems. The evaluation results for the prototype system showed that many benefits can be obtained for both paper and electronic document processing environments.
