Stambaugh, Laine, Comp.; Gomez, Joni, Comp.
SPEC Kit, n252 Oct 1999
This survey of Association of Research Libraries (ARL) members gathered data on library support staff classification specifications in ARL libraries, the process for classifying these positions, and salary and title comparisons with similar positions outside of the library. It also asked when the last classification study was performed within the library, what triggered the process, which was involved, and what the results of the classification study were in both economic and human terms. A copy of tabulated results from the questionnaire is included. Representative documents include job descriptions/specifications from the University of Alabama, University of British Columbia, University of Maryland, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Oregon, University of Saskatchewan, University of Virginia, University of Washington, and Washington University-St. Louis (Missouri). Contains selected resources, including books, journal articles, and World Wide Web sites. (MES)
