Overview Handout with Basic Tips /Examples for Filenaming for Digital Curation SobekCM supports the myriad of filenaming conventions, but local needs and best practices may vary slightly for different institutions and projects. This overview handout provides a few examples from institutions that best matched local needs and practices. Please note that these local practices follow the logic of organization for each local institution and project Following a logical, documented manner that matches with existing practi c es when available is a best practice Examples Example with a photograph one/single side : I f you are digitizing on ly one side, and the photograph was in Folder 12, Box 3, Item 4, the name could be: 'F12B3I4.tif' Or, if they are cataloged in your records or have an accession number, you could use that (remembering to not include any periods in the actual filename portion). Example with a photograph both side s : If you are digitizing the front and back, you will likely want to either name them '00001.tif' for the fro nt and '00002.tif' for the back. OR U tilize a naming scheme including the accessi on number, catalog number, etc. and ending with '_ 1.tif' or '_2.tif' for the back Example s for I tems with A ccess io n and Cat a log N umb ers ; and Without Existing Identifiers Accession number 123.1994.2232 If digitizing front s ide only, name it '123_1994_2232.tif' If both sides, you could name them '123_1994_2232_1.tif' for the front and '123_1994_2232_2.tif' for the verso/back. Catalog number 0001213 If digitizing front side only, name it '0001213.tif' If both sides, you coul d name them '0001213_1.tif' for the front and '0001212_2.tif' for the verso/back. No special identifier N ame the front '00001.tif' and the back (if you digitize it) '00002.tif'. Please Remember to Note For items with many files like books, using four or five digits for the files/images for each of the pages of the book/item is best Example: '0001.tif, '0002.tif ', '0003.tif', '0004.tif', etc.
