Summary, etc.: 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.
