Salary Survey

Share Share   Print

The ARL Annual Salary Survey reports salaries for more than 12,000 professional positions in ARL member libraries on an annual basis.

These data are used to determine whether salaries are competitive, equitable across institutions and personal characteristics, and keeping up with inflation.

The survey also tracks minority representation in ARL US libraries and reports separate data for health sciences and law libraries.

Statistics have been collected and published annually since 1980.
