Placements & Salaries Survey 2010: Stagnant Salaries, Rising Unemployment
Maatta, Stephanie L.
Library Journal, v135 n17 p22-29 Oct 2010
"Library Journal's annual Placements & Salaries Survey, with 1,996 respondents representing 38.7% of the approximately 5160 2009 LIS graduates, found an uptick in starting salaries, but bigger bumps in part-time and temporary jobs, an expanding gender gap, setbacks for minority graduates, and a drop in the number of total graduates. On the up side, it also identified new roles in and beyond libraries, some regional hotspots and more silver linings. Participants relayed many tales of triumph and travail, illustrating another struggling job market with a few glimmers of hope and achievement.
