In this webcast held on March 5, 2013, Martha Kyrillidou and Shaneka Morris of ARL's Statistics and Assessment program describe how to effectively use data from the ARL Annual Salary Survey to promote higher salaries for library professionals. They highlight salary comparisons from a number of perspectives, including geographic region, type of library (public/private), rank structure, and position categories. The webcast also touches on the history of the ARL Annual Salary Survey and its data collection approach, provides information on the utility of the salary information in the annual ARL publication, and discusses some key changes made to modernize the job categories to reflect current job titles.
This is the first in a series of four webcasts illustrating effective uses of data from the ARL Annual Salary Survey, which reports salaries for more than 12,000 professional positions in ARL libraries in the United States and Canada.
