Title:What Can I Expect to Earn: Information Sources for Library Salary Negotiations
Author(s):Zumalt, Joseph R.
Subject(s):salary negotiations
Web resources
salary tools
Abstract:Finding salary information about individual library positions is a difficult but not impossible task. There are sources available for free and for fee which tell someone what salary to ask for in a given location. Commercially available tools are also available over the Internet. Two Internet-accessible salary tools, from and, were reviewed for library positions in the immediate Champaign-Urbana (IL) area. To test the accuracy of these tools, a file was created to compare salary, years of experience and level of responsibility. While requiring a considerable effort, this level of detail provides a better sense of library salaries in a given area. Aggregate figures obtained reveal a considerable difference. Discretion is advised when using these sources for salary negotiations.
