Adrienne Brennecke

Library and Data Services Coordinator

Adrienne connects researchers and data professionals to the economic and financial data they need to produce authoritative, scholarly publications for the Federal Reserve. Since joining the St. Louis Fed in 2008, she has supported FRED and other Research Division services as they have grown to serve millions of users. She navigates copyright and licensing issues, while identifying, acquiring, and answering questions about data resources. Adrienne plays a lead role planning for a new Federal Statistical Research Data Center in St. Louis. She also leads the team for the Division’s biennial Beyond the Numbers conference, and recently contributed to the development of the Economic Education team’s Economics and the Great Migration Curriculum.
