Student Feature - Stephon Boykin, '20

Oct 14, 2019

History and African and African American Studies double-major, Stephon Boykin, '20, was featured in a recent newsletter from the Library of Congress. This summer, Boykin served as the  HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) Library Alliance Summer Intern in which he worked on a variety of projects across Preservation Divisions. 

 The newsletter noted Boykin's summer project  related to The Negro Travelers' Green Books in the Library's holdings: 
 
"Stephon's review of WorldCat established that two of the editions held by the Library of Congress (1946 and  1953 ) are the only known copies. These two unique editions have been put into the PRD (Preservation Reformatting Division) digitization queue and our catalog records have been updated to include a link to the Green Books that have previously been digitized by the  Schomburg Center  of the New York Public Library."
