Records management refers to the systematic management of an organisation’s overall recordss (documents). The management of public documents is especially important within a public authority.
Records management includes measures throughout the document's life cycle. On these pages you will find instructions regarding document registration which will often take place when a document is received or drawn up, as well as the archiving or disposal thereafter.
The general principles of records management are the same for paper documents and other analogue materials as for electronic documents. The latter, however, involves some specific, practical and technical requirements.
Documents handled within the University shall also be classified according to the content of the document, regardless of the form.
Registering documents through the document registration system W3D3
At Lund University, we work in different systems. Our document registration system is called W3D3. All employees who use W3D3 for registering their documents must first undergo training to become authorised. Only after you have completed the training will you receive your login information.
For the registering of research funding and commission agreements there are specific central routines.
