Placements & Salaries Survey 2009: Jobs and Pay Take a Hit
Library Journal, v134 n17 p21-29 Oct 2009
"It's a recession, baby!" was the common refrain among the Library and Information Science (LIS) graduates of the class of 2008. This was a record year for the number of graduates participating in "Library Journal"'s annual Placements & Salaries survey, and they had stories to tell, providing evidence of both hard times in the job market, and some successes and satisfaction. This article presents data on librarian jobs and pay scale and illustrates how the average starting salary of librarians declined from 2007 to 2008.
