Title (Goal)Improve Users experience when displaying item location data 
Primary ActorAdministrator
Story (A paragraph or two describing what happens)

 Allow administrators to assign ACRONYMS/short names to communities and collection. It would be best to enforce that sibling collections/communities never have the same name and that the names are indeed short, meaning names have a maximum number of characters. The specific number should be a global configuration setting.

Use these short names where screen real estate is tight, with the goal of allowing more information to be displayed in a concise and thus more readable fashion.

Usage example:

+ include break crumb like item location in search results

+ include break crumb like location in drop down lists when users are to choose a  collection

+  show acronym  of enclosing collection instead of full name in item lists

+ ...

A hover over feature could allow access to the full name.
