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."
