Section 2 – Basic Operation 

 

Pad Staff Workstation Software 

The 3M™ Pad Staff Workstation software consolidates a 
number of library functions to enable staff to process items 
identified by 3M™ D8 RFID tags. The workstation reads item 
ID information from the tags and sends the information to the 
library circulation system. The Pad Staff Workstation software 
secures and un-secures tags as required. 
 

 

 

 
The Pad Staff Workstation software can perform the following 
operations: 
§  Check-In and Check-Out  Send IDs to circulation and 

secure or un-secure items. 

§  Send ID  Send item identifiers read from tags to the library 

circulation system. 

§  Secure/Un-Secure Only  Change the status of items 

security without sending IDs to the circulation system. 

§  Read Tags Only  Read and display tag information.
