Using ARL Salary Data to Make the Case for Higher Salaries webcast

This webcast, held May 21, 2013, examines how to use the ARL Annual Salary Survey beyond the published data. The speakers showcase how libraries have used ARL's custom report services, identify how to demonstrate salary issues that need to be addressed, and discuss strategies leaders have used to make the case for improved salaries. The participants are Carla Stoffle, Dean of Libraries at the University of Arizona; Arnold Hirshon, Associate Provost and University Librarian at Case Western Reserve University; and Jeffrey Trzeciak, University Librarian at Washington University in St. Louis. The webcast is hosted by Martha Kyrillidou, Senior Director of Statistics and Service Quality Programs at the Association of Research Libraries.

This is the second 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.

This webcast, recorded May 9, 2013, provides a broad overview of methods used to estimate value in academic libraries and describes a study that calculated return on investment at the Syracuse University Library in 2010-2011. The presenter is Bruce Kingma, Professor in the School of Information Sciences and Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University.

The LibValue project (http://libvalue.cci.utk.edu/) is a three-year study funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services to define and measure ways in which libraries create value through teaching and learning, research, and social, professional, and public engagement. LibValue is a collaboration among the University of Tennessee, Knoxville; the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Libraries; and the Association of Research Libraries, with partners at Syracuse University and Bryant University.

This is the fourth in a series of six free webcasts on LibValue to be held in 2013.
