1973/74 Interinstitutional Salary of Professional Librarians Employed by the SUS of Florida.
A survey was conducted of the salaries paid to the professional librarians staffing the various libraries of the Florida State University System. The data collected indicated the following average salaries for the seven major types of positions: 1) directors- $24,500; 2) assistant directors-$16,549; 3) branch heads-$14,432; 4) department heads-$12,687; 5) curators and specialists-$12,475; 6) associate librarians-$11,409; and 7) assistant librarians-$9833. A total of 244 full-time equivalency positions was identified; 69 percent of these were filled by women, up from 66.5 percent the previous year. Minority employment was 13.6 percent, down from 15.2 percent the year before. Since the survey showed that a) the salaries paid by the state system were lower, on the average, than those found in other states and b) that males were paid more than females and minority staff less than non-minority employees, it was recommended that steps be taken to raise salaries to a level competitive with those found elsewhere and to eliminate internal salary discriminations based upon sex or race. Several tables present detailed data. (PB)
