The first part of every file name is the Title.

This answers the questions: Where? Who?

The title is usually the abbreviations of the Place or Project the file relates to. Find the appropriate Places/Projects abbreviation from the abbreviation list. 

  • You can have more than one Place or Project abbreviation in the Title.
  • You may also use a person's name, if relevant (not yours). 
  • You may have both a Places/Projects abbreviation AND a person's name.

If using a personal name in the file name, please provide the surname first followed by the person’s first initial with no space between (ie: SmithR).
