Alan Chen reorganizes the Classics Seminar room Collection
Project SEARCH intern Alan Chen helps organize the library in the Department of Classics in Denny Hall. The books had been boxed up during the Denny renovation, and with Chen’s help, “The collection is in the best shape it’s been in since we moved,” said

One of the challenges of the beautiful Denny Hall renovation was the return of Classics' fine study collection of texts and commentaries to the Meg Greenfield Room - especially since there are slightly fewer bookshelves in the new version of this lovely room. Since early 2018, intern Alan Chen has worked wonders bringing order to the collection and its cataloguing. Alan carried out the work under the auspices of Project Search, a national initiative focused on providing school-to-work experiences for individuals on the autism spectrum. Everyone who uses the Meg Greenfield Room collection will be grateful for Alan's work for years to come. See more about Project Search's work at UW here
