Adding new services is done as new needs arise. But taking away existing services-- the "legacy services" of the title-- makes many librarians uncomfortable-- even if these services are no longer relevant to the community. This collection of essays is designed to help you discover ways to identify services, activities, and practices that can be let go, so that staff can focus on valuable, mission-critical work.

While the individual case studies will be of more interest to academic librarians (there are only two public library examples included in the book), the overall message of using data to drive decisions, being responsible with change management, and the need to revisit long-standing services will be of use to many librarian readers.
