Where/how to find things/Naming Conventions
Journals are abbreviated in the naming conventions for printers, computers, and file shares thus:
- lr = Minnesota Law Review
- jli = Journal of Law & Inequality
- jil = Minnesota Journal of International Law
- jlel = ABA Journal of Labor & Employment Law
- mjlst = Minnesota Journal of Law, Science, & Technology
(NB - thinking of changing this scheme to reflect the journals' departmental accounts, i.e. mnlawrev, lawineqj, mjil, jlel, mjlst; but some of these might be too long.)
- Printers are named according the the pattern law-journal-room [(Model)], e.g. "law-lr-230 (HP 2430)"
- Journal computer workstations are named law-journal-room[-description], e.g. "law-jil-220a" or "law-jli-230a-EIC"
- The files that are available to journals on the shared drive (\\files.umn.edu\law\shared\) are named according to the following conventions:
- Journal (main folder that all staff, editors, EICs, secretaries, etc. can access), e.g. "Law Review"
- Journal EIC Docs (folder that only EICs and secretaries can access), e.g. "Law & Inequality EIC Docs"
- Other folders (by request only) - these folders can consist of any groups or subgroups you would like, as long as we are supplied with updated lists of those who need access. Some examples may include:
- Journal AE Docs (access to EICs, article editors, secretaries), e.g. "International Law AE Docs"
- Journal EB Docs (access to editorial board), e.g. "Labor & Employment Law EB Docs"
