Records Management - Naming Conventions for Electronic Records
Why do we need file naming conventions?
To facilitate the efficient storage and the effective retrieval of University records, it is essential that they are named in a consistent and coherent way.
The benefit of file naming is realised in the establishment of a few simple rules, the aim of which is to reduce the problem of decision making, through the encouragement of consistent practice.
By consistency of application, file naming becomes a great deal easier , insofar as the rules for naming become established and learned, with required decisions no longer needing to be thought through time and again and on each and every occasion.
