Filename Convention (File Format)

If you are responsible for uploading files to the FAU Libraries Committees site please adhere to the following file naming convention for materials where the date of creation is of high significance:


For example: 2016-02-22_sac_minutes

In other cases, the date of creation may be of less significance and it would be preferable to start with the file name

Please use lowercase, no special characters {[!@#$%^&*()}<>?":,./|\] and no spaces.

Use hypens (for dates such as YYYY-DD-MO ) and Underscores between words.

Please rename original files before loading on this site and keep files organized on the shared drive for backup.
