It’s a family tradition

Maura Hagan has a thing for libraries. The HAO scientist, who specializes in upper-atmosphere phenomena, was named for her aunt, Mary Elizabeth—the former head librarian for the commonwealth of Massachusetts.

“I grew up loving libraries,” she says. “I think it was fed to me with my baby food.”

So even though Maura has a computer in her office, as well as several shelves of books and magazines, she often can be found reading in the FL2 library. Sometimes the material that she’s poring over dates back several decades, because she likes to go back to primary sources. She gives the librarians high marks for finding obscure articles, such as one on the ionosphere that dated back to the mid-twentieth century.

“The librarians are such professionals and very knowledgeable,” she says.
