Amanda Wheatley

2019 OLA Superconference

As a librarian, Amanda is passionate about providing access to information for all peoples. She enjoys adapting information literacy instruction through active learning and gamification. Her research is cornered around the ways librarians can engage their patrons through dynamic and innovative teaching.

As a citizen, Amanda uses writing and literacy to express the plights of the North and give a voice to people who may not know how to use their own. No stranger to controversial issues, Amanda loves to take on all forms of writing to engage with personal and social topics. She recognizes that the voices in the North do not always carry to the South. As a result, she created Northern Storyteller to promote Northern living and the resilient people searching for a way to let their voices shine.
