1988-1991 Salary Survey of Pennsylvania Academic Libraries.
Pennsylvania Library Association, Harrisburg. Coll. and Research Libraries Div.
These four annual survey reports combined here were published separately as a service to members of the Pennsylvania Library Association's College and Research Division. Questionnaires were sent each year to approximately 150 two-year, baccalaureate, comprehensive, and doctoral degree granting colleges and universities. Libraries surveyed were part of public, state-related, nonsectarian, and church-related institutions. The survey follows the Association of Research Libraries Salary Survey model, and the institutional source of information reported is kept confidential. Depending on the year of the survey, between 62-65% of the libraries responded, and the statistics represent about 75% of the approximately 1,100 academic librarians employed statewide. Results of the survey are reported in 15 identical tables in each of the four volumes. These tables provide information on the distribution of professional staff by salary bracket and experience; distribution of beginning salaries; average salaries by years of experience, metropolitan area, type of institution, size of professional staff, and AAUP category; number of librarians by years of experience, metropolitan area, type of institution, position, size of professional staff, and AAUP category; and information about the number, salaries, distribution, location, and experience of minority librarians. Most of the 15 tables correlate two of these characteristics. A list of the libraries participating in the survey and a copy of the questionnaire for that year's survey is appended to each of the four reports. (KRN)
