Effectively Using ARL Salary and Demographic Data

salary-survey-coverARL is now offering a series of four webcasts illustrating effective uses of data from the ARL Annual Salary Survey. The webcasts will address what data are available through ARL, how these data can be used locally to make a case for better salaries, how to develop equitable salary structures, and how to analyze demographic information and trends about aging and other characteristics.

The ARL Annual Salary Survey reports salaries for more than 12,000 professional positions in ARL member libraries on an annual basis. These data are used to determine whether salaries are competitive, equitable across institutions and personal characteristics, and keeping up with inflation. The survey also tracks minority representation in US ARL libraries and reports separate data for health sciences and law libraries.

The webcasts will be hosted by Martha Kyrillidou, Senior Director of ARL Statistics and Service Quality Programs.
