FREE webinar with 2 CPD points: Best practices in file naming in Libraries and Archives

Proper file naming is important for the effective organization, preservation, standardization, and access of digital files in libraries and archives. File naming can help in many aspects of library and archive work.

If files are named consistently and descriptively, they can be easily sorted and searched for later. Digital files can be easily lost or damaged over time. By using consistent file naming conventions, libraries and archives can ensure that files are preserved and accessible for future use.

Standardized file naming help ensure that files are named in a consistent and recognizable way across the library or archive. This can prevent confusion and errors, and ensure that files are easily identified and understood. If files are not named correctly, it may be difficult for users to locate and access the information they need.

This free webinar can teach proper file naming for students and practitioners in libraries and archives:
