Wrangling the Seattle Times Journalist Files is a project organizing and cataloging the journalist files that were acquired from the Seattle Times by the University of Washington Libraries about 9 years ago. These files contain numerous documents that the journalists collected while researching and writing pieces for the paper. The task of the project was to create a set of guidelines for cataloging these resources so that student workers at the library can continue the work of organizing these documents. A LibGuide was also created for these documents to make them more accessible to the users of the library.
