Abstract

From time to time library budgets do not grow at a rate sufficient to sustain current library operations. In such circumstances, library managers must retrench. Although strategic planning is often associated with new resources, it may be equally important for successful retrenchment. When is retrenchment likely to be necessary in academic libraries? How might management approach retrenchment?
