To ensure that new folders are created as quickly as possible, follow these directions:

  • Always include your full contact details so we can quickly clarify anything with you.
  • Include enough detail in your proposed folder title to clearly identify the subject/content of the folder and enable future searching and retrieval.
  • Avoid using punctuation in folder titles. Separate elements of the folder title using hyphen ( - )
  • Include the full name (and abbreviation if applicable) of any organisations which appear in the file title (e.g. Records Management Services RMS).
  • Use the Further Assistance section to add any additional notes or explanatory comments which may assist us in making up the folder

Tip! Use TRIM to search for folders similar to the one you are requesting for titling hints. To see the full list of available classification terms in TRIM, go to Search > Browse Via Classifications (or click Ctrl+F3) then click on the + signs to see lower terms.
