ARL Annual Salary Survey, 2001-02.
Kyrillidou, Martha, Comp.; Young, Mark, Comp.
This document reports the 2001-2002 salary data for all professional staff working in ARL (Association of Research Libraries) libraries. Data for 9,198 professional staff members were reported for the 1,130 ARL university libraries, including their law and medical libraries (859 staff members reported by 69 medical libraries and 724 staff members reported by 74 law libraries). For the 10 non-university ARL members, data were reported for 3,717 professional staff members. The tables are organized in seven major sections: (1) salary figures for all professionals working in ARL member libraries, including law and medical library data; (2) salary information for the 10 non-university research libraries of ARL; (3) data for the general library system of the university ARL members, combing U.S. and Canadian data but excluding law and medical data; (4) data on U.S. ARL university library members excluding law and medical data; (5) data on Canadian ARL university libraries excluding law and medical data; (6) data on medical libraries, combining U.S. and Canadian data; and (7) data on law libraries, combining U.S. and Canadian data. The university population is generally treated in three distinct groups: staff in the general library system, staff in the university medical libraries, and staff in the university law libraries. All branch libraries for which data were received, other than law and medical, are included in the general category, whether or not those libraries are administratively independent. Most tables show Canadian salaries converted into U.S. dollar equivalents; tables pertaining exclusively to staff in Canadian university libraries express salary data in Canadian dollars. Copies of the university and nonuniversity library questionnaires are included. A list of ARL member libraries and a table of numbering changes for 1998-99 to 1999-2000 are appended. (Contains 48 data tables.) (MES)
