Webcast
In this upcoming webcast scheduled for Tuesday, March 5, 2013, 1:00–2:00 p.m. EST, “Martha Kyrillidou and Shaneka Morris of ARL’s Statistics and Assessment program will describe how to effectively use data from the ARL Annual Salary Survey to promote higher salaries for library professionals. The information ARL collects annually captures salaries for professionals in the major research libraries in the US and Canada. This presentation will feature information that you can use in benchmarking, highlighting salary comparisons from a number of different perspectives: by geographic region, type of library (public/private), rank structure, and position categories, among other variables. The webcast will also touch on the history of the ARL Annual Salary Survey and its data collection approach, provide information on the utility of the salary information in the annual ARL publication, and discuss some key changes made to modernize the job categories to reflect 21st-century job titles.
This is the first in a series of four webcasts illustrating effective uses of data from the ARL Salary Survey, which reports salaries for more than 12,000 professional positions in ARL libraries on an annual basis. Other webcasts will discuss how to use ARL Salary Survey data to make the case for higher salaries from an administrator’s perspective, present case studies showing how data from the survey have been used to establish equitable salary structures for faculty librarians, and examine age and race/ethnicity trends in the profession.
