Useful for librarians seeking employment in academic and public libraries, and for library directors hiring staff, this report summarizes salaries paid as of February 1, 2009, to staff in six position categories: directors/deans, associate/assistant directors, department heads, managers of support staff, librarians who do not supervise and beginning librarians.

The survey shows aggregated data from more than 17,018 ALA MLS librarians by region and state for public libraries serving populations under 10,000 to more than 500,000 and community college, four-year college and university libraries, including Association of Research Libraries data.

Separate PDF downloads of ALA-APA Salary Survey: Librarian - Academic (2009) and ALA-APA Salary Survey: Librarian - Public (2009) are also available.
