Be Consistent & Descriptive

1) If you obtain files from the Internet, check file names and change their names, following the file naming convention.

2) Make sure to design a meaningful file naming convention before uploading any file.

For example,
Year_Title-of-Work (e.g., 6thC_Shield-Ornament, 1483-1485-The-Rous-Roll.),
Year_Title-of-Work_Location (e.g., 6thC_Shield-Ornament_British-Museum, 1483-1485_The-Rous-Roll_British-Library.), OR
Year_Title-of-Journal-Article (e.g., 2020_Game-of-Thrones-Music-in-Complex-TV)

Do NOT include any space. If you do, %20 would be added by the browser to replace the space between the words.
