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 built by working with my library colleagues in creative partnership to better serve their 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 and source and screen contractors and permanent FTEs . I'm also a versatile and experienced Librarian and do many projects solo. It all depends on the scope of your project.

Our clients include: National Academy of Sciences, Criterion Edge, L.A. Metro, Foundation for Science & Math Education, Missouri DOT, Iowa DOT, Partners in Brainstorms, Arizona DOT, Tennessee DOT

What Our Clients Say

Maggie is the very epitome of the temperament and talents that librarians and information professionals should possess. Her ability to bring people together in pursuit of mutual goals, even in the most demanding of circumstances and environments, is exemplary. I can personally attest that she has met each challenge with unmatched focus and expertise. She is a resourceful, hard-working, well-organized, solution-oriented person who knows how to lead and when to take direction. She has been especially skillful when it comes to juggling multiple projects and priorities without sacrificing the quality of any. We have been very fortunate to have her as a pivotal contributor in the transportation libraries community.
