Outstanding Student Assistant Award

The University of Oklahoma Libraries April 2017

"Congratulations to the recipient of the 2017 Outstanding Student Assistant Award, Ryan Dobyns. As a part of the EDGE and Architecture Library, Ryan’s professionalism, technical expertise, inquisitive nature and persistence were essential to the creation of a Virtual Reality workstation in the Architecture Library. Always a highly reliable employee, Ryan has begun splitting his time between the branch library and The EDGE and he has quickly grown into an asset that many throughout our organization and the College of Architecture have grown to rely upon. At a demonstration on January 18th, the enthusiasm from the seven faculty members who experienced VR for the first time was palpable. We have already begun making plans to accommodate a greater demand for this technology, and Ryan is at the heart of these efforts. We appreciate his contributions and continue to look forward to the results of his assistance in innovating pedagogy within the College of Architecture." - OU Libraries
