Fretwell, Gordon, Comp.
This report presents the results of the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) 1983 survey of librarians' salaries in 19 tables. A brief introduction summarizing the most important statistical findings from the survey notes that the fiscal 1984 median salary for ARL university librarians was $24,940, an increase of 6.1% from the previous year. Explanatory notes and information on survey changes since the previous year are also provided. Data are presented in four major categories: (1) salary levels for personnel in ARL libraries; (2) median and beginning professional salaries in ARL non-university libraries; (3) average, median, and beginning professional salaries in ARL university libraries; and (4) distribution of personnel and average salaries for positions in ARL university libraries, with data characterized by sex, minority status, years of experience, type of institution, size of professional staff, and geographic region. Sample university and non-university library questionnaires and instructions for their use are also presented. (ESR)
