In 2019 a colleague approached me to ask if I would use the (mothballed at the time) Hiring Librarians platform to help with salary transparency. We fired up the Interview Questions Repository and added a sheet where:
Currently Employed LIS Workers Share Salary Information.
If you find this resource useful, please help keep it up to date and robust by:
Submitting Your Current Salary Information Here.
If you are interested in other work for salary transparency, check out:
- Library Salaries List: a comprehensive document created in 2018. In addition to anonymized salary info, the document includes links to suggested readings and libraries with publicly listed salary information.
- SAA19 Archivist Salary Transparency Open Spreadsheet (updated March 21): After it’s impromptu creation at SAA19, the sheet transitioned to form based submissions. Although submissions have slowed, they are still open. Please visit the submission form to add your salary information.
I welcome your feedback. Please feel free to email me or use the contact form.
