Apr 7, 2022
Galveston College alumna, Phylicia French recently visited Galveston College to join with students to celebrate her new book, Sis, You Are the Universe. As part of the festivities, the David Glenn Hunt Memorial Library cataloged French’s book in the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC) library database, “WorldCat,” making it the first library in the world to do so.
Telishia Mickens, Director of Library and Learning Resources and Amanda Newell, Library Technical Assistant cataloged Sis, You Are the Universe in WorldCat as part of the College’s contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion by ensuring the representation of underrepresented voices. WorldCat is the world’s most comprehensive database of information about library collections containing more than 521,694,418 bibliographic records.
French’s first class was in 2005 but she returned later as a transfer student. After her time at Galveston College, French transferred to Sam Houston State University and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Sociology and a minor in Communication. She later went on to earn a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Lamar University. She is now a full-time international speaker, coach, bestselling author, and entrepreneur traveling the world. “I am extremely thankful for my transformative experience at Galveston College,” said French. “I hope my story inspires someone to keep going!”
