Filename etiquette and guidelines

College users may find it useful to read over the information on our web page concerning filename etiquette and guidelines.  A consistent approach to naming your data files can be a great step towards avoiding frustration and saving time in subsequently locating those files.

Note that the advice provided regarding the naming of your data files does not constitute an official College policy, rather we recommend that each local area agree on their own specific procedures after taking this information on board.

A related item that all members of College should be aware of, regarding the content of your documents and how to improve accessibility, is the College’s Clear Print Guidelines, an appendix of the Accessible Information Policy.
