Many small research reactors, neutron sources built in the 1950s and 1960s are being shut down. The activities that these supported have therefore ended, which motivates their replacements with new facilities. Compact accelerator-based neutron sources under development are able to take up many of those activities. This paper paints the background for these developments, summarizes the replacement technologies, relates recent work that supports them, and alludes to some of the new activities that they enable.
