My consulting practice focused on libraries, academic and public, but also the delivery of technology by education-based organizations. My goal was to help individuals and organizations sort through options, explore creative ideas, develop plans, and succeed in the processes of change. I thank all of my clients and former colleagues for your support and good cheer over the years.
My career included leadership roles in academic and public libraries, administrative experience in technology delivery in higher education, and many years of service in both information technology and library professional organizations.
Analysis and problem solving are two key areas of support that I provided. My wide range of experience allowed me to bring new perspectives to many situations. I offered short-term interim leadership, meeting facilitation, renovation, or strategic planning services.
My clients included a large, urban public library (where I served as interim Head Librarian), an educational not-for-profit organization, a library consortium, and a small special library. For each assignment, I provided expertise in moving projects and conversations forward to successful completion.
"Tracey Leger-Hornby stepped into a leadership role for the Worcester Public Library as interim Head Librarian in July 2014. She kept the library not only running smoothly during a difficult period, but moving forward. Tracey stayed in the position for eight months and left the library in a very strong position, which helped the new permanent Head Librarian hit the ground running. Her skillful management of the library during the transition was greatly appreciated by the Board, the City administration, and the staff of the library." Deborah Packard, Chair, Worcester Public Library Board of Trustees
"Dr. Tracey Leger-Hornby was engaged as an Interim Director and Consultant for Research and Instruction Services at Wheaton College (MA). While at Wheaton Tracey put into practice several staff management processes, clarified the service catalog of the group, developed a vision and mission statement for Research and Instruction services, and began development of a tiered service model in support of the many and varied responsibilities of the group. I highly recommend Tracey for her thorough understanding of the issues facing academic libraries; for her thought-provoking approach to assessment and analysis of personnel and services; and for her professionalism in all aspects of her work." Susan Wawrzaszek, Associate Vice President for Library and Information Services, Wheaton College
