ARL Annual Salary Survey, 1998-1999.
Association of Research Libraries, Washington, DC.
The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) Annual Salary Survey reports salary data for all professional staff working in ARL libraries, and is the most comprehensive and thorough guide to current salaries in large U.S. and Canadian academic and research libraries. Data for 8,400 professional staff memebers were reported for 1998-99 for the 110 ARL university libraries, including their law and medical libraries. For nonuniversity ARL members, data were reported for 3,819 professional staff members. This publication follows the general format of previous years. Most tables show Canadian salaries converted into U.S. dollar equivalents at the rate of 1.4177 Canadian dollars per U.S. dollar, except for tables that pertain exclusively to staff in Canadian university libraries, which are expressed in Canadian dollars. Forty-two tables are presented under three distinct groups: staff in the "general" library system, staff in the university medical libraries, and staff in the university law libraries. Tables include average, median, and beginning salaries, and salaries by position, experience, sex, race/ethnic background, type of institution, geographic region and size. The survey questionnaires for university and nonuniversity member libraries are included at the end of the document. (AEF)
