Designed for undergraduates but applicable for anyone, this handout consolidates file organization best practices from a variety of Purdue Library Guides. Page one includes tips for organizing coursework and file naming convention guidelines in a simple, easy-to-read format. Page two includes a template for file directory organization, and an exercise for students to create their own directory structure. These file organization guidelines are also intended as an introduction to the foundational principles of data management.
