DFS/W3D3 is the Lund University-wide support system for document registration. DFS is Lund University’s abbreviation for Document Flow Systems. DFS/W3D3 is a web application and you need an internet connection to be able to access your cases, documents, files, workflow and more. This allows you to just as easily work in the office as at home, at a conference, or somewhere else in the world.

For the registering of research funding and commission agreements there are specific central routines.

Since the turn of the year 2014/2015, W3D3 serves as a digital transitional archive. That is, you do not need to print the original documents drawn up or received in a digital format when you close a case in W3D3. These documents can remain in the system pending final archiving in an electronic archive.

Visual Arkiv

Mainly used by the University Archives. Temporary access privileges can be awarded when large volumes are to be registered.

Visual Arkiv is Lund University’s system for making an archive registry. This system produces written archive registrations and labels for archive boxes. Through Visual Arkiv the archive is registered in accordance with the general archive schedule (documents drawn up after the termination of the former archiving system, 31 December 2013, shall be listed in Visual Arkiv for the time being).


Only used by the University Archives.

Klara is Lund University’s new system for archive registrations in accordance with the activity-based classification structure (RAFS 2008:2). The system was introduced 1 January 2014.
