File Naming Tutorials from the State Library

[This blog notice comes from Lisa A. Gregory, Digital Projects Liaison for the Digital Information Management Program, part of the State Library of North Carolina. For more information about the State Library, visit their website or blog.]

The State Library of North Carolina is excited to announce a short, easy-to-understand tutorial on file naming. Designed to help people take small and everyday steps to preserve their files, this four-part tutorial describes why file naming is important, how to change a file name, and the dos and donts of file naming. We’re hoping you can make these videos available to your patrons or anyone else who might be creating digital files.

These videos are part of a new series, Inform U, which will feature tutorials on digital preservation. Digital preservation means taking practical and conscious steps to keep digital files around for future access and use.
