SLA-LMD's Tech Tibdits series continues! Join us on Weds., April 27, at 2pm ET, as internet librarian Amanda Brennan discusses the uses of memes and gifs in the workplace and beyond.
Amanda Brennan is an internet librarian who has spent the past decade looking at the ways we talk about the things we love online. After graduating with her MLIS from Rutgers University, she began her career at Know Your Meme, then spent seven years at Tumblr. There, she spearheaded The Fandometrics, a ranking system of entertainment fandoms, which Paste Magazine asserted should be "given a permanent place in pop culture’s critical metrics tool belt."
In 2021, Amanda stepped into the role of Senior Director, Trends Social at XX Artists, an award-winning agency built on diversity and inclusion. She has spoken about internet history at conferences across the US, on topics ranging from Slender Man to cat videos, and has appeared in multiple documentaries as an authority on internet culture. She lives in New Jersey with her wife, their three cats, and a fully stocked seltzer cabinet.
