SLA Triennial Salary Survey, 1989.
Special Libraries Association, Washington, DC.
The objectives of the 8th triennial salary survey of Special Library Association (SLA) members were to: (1) obtain systematic accurate information about the salaries of special librarians and information personnel; (2) establish a data bank from which inquiries about salaries can be answered for members of the SLA, persons engaged in personnel and recruitment activities, and persons planning special library careers; and (3) enable SLA members to assess their own salaries in view of the numerous variables. The reported salary means and medians represent respondents employed on a full-time basis or those whose academic year basis could be converted to a calendar year equivalent. Data are reported for the 25th, 50th, and 75th percentiles where the 50th percentile is the median; the average of the lowest and highest 10 percent are also included. The 27 tables display data on salary by sex; census division; metropolitan areas; types of institutions; primary responsibilities; supervisory responsibilities; academic background and previous experience; minority groups; and age.
