WORK WITH US
Maggie Sacco Curcio, MLS, Lead Consultant
I started Infocus Library Consulting in 2015 when I moved to SoCal, after five years in partnership with my best friend at HS Infocus LLC. I'm continuing what we started by working with my library colleagues in creative partnership to better serve our customers. I've built relationships with Librarians, Vendors, Graphic Artists, Preservationists, Data and IT Professionals, - I'll assemble a team that's a custom fit for your project. I can source and screen project and permanent FTEs and provide cataloging services too. I'm also a versatile and experienced Librarian and do many projects solo. It all depends on the scope of your project.
