Mary Glendinning, MLS

Mary Glendinning is a reference librarian at NPR. Along with her colleagues, she provides a variety of reference and research services to all of NPR's divisions — from one-word answers to extensive background research. Her duties include fact-checking, tracking down experts, monitoring news alerts, and encouraging external database usage and training.

Mary was the first librarian to embed with the staff of an NPR show and likes working outside of a traditional library setting. She has a BA from The Johns Hopkins University and an MLS from the University of Pittsburgh.

Hannah Sommers, MLIS

Hannah Sommers is a broadcast librarian at NPR. She aids reporters and production staff seeking audio clips and other information that is critical to telling a story in sound and also contributes to the maintenance of NPR's expansive audio archives. With her colleagues, she helped develop the training program used to teach NPR staff about new research tools and to coach them in best research practices.

Hannah is the co-lead on creating NPR's digital archive and is looking forward to the day that all NPR programming will be virtually accessible. She has a BA from Goshen College and an MLIS from the University of Texas at Austin.
