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 video describes why file naming is important, how to change a file name and the dos and donts of file naming.

They 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.

This exciting project was made possible through the LYRASIS Mass Digitization Collaborative – a Sloan Foundation grant-subsidized program that has made digitization easy and affordable for libraries and cultural institutions across the country.

Through the Collaborative’s partnership with the Internet Archive, items were scanned from cover-to-cover and in full color.  You can choose from a variety of formats: page through a book by choosing the “read online” option, download the PDF or Kindle file, or search the full text version.

UNCW partnered with the NC Digital Heritage Center to digitize the Fledgling yearbooks and publish them on the Internet Archive.  NCDHC digitized the yearbooks at no cost to UNCW.

To view all collections, simply visit Internet Archive: UNCW Collection.
