Document Naming Guidelines in the Private Sector

By Lina Ma posted 02-25-2011 14:03


While there is a lot of freely available information online related to electronic document naming conventions, most (if not all) of these best practices and guidelines come from educational institutions, governments, records and information management organizations, and other non-profit/public sector institutions.

Sadly missing are industry-specific document naming guidelines from established companies in the private/corporate sector, such as legal or accounting firms. These firms have little reason to post their internal operating procedures on the public Web, yet such valuable knowledge is lost to those out there who want to learn by example.

Does anyone know of private sector companies who do share their document naming guidelines online? Or, would anyone from the AIIM Communities here be willing to share their own company's practices?
