Other sources of salary information are the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Occupational Employment and Wages for Librarians, May 2016 and Glassdoor.com , a website that offers specific industry and employer reviews, salaries, and benefits from employees and interview questions from candidates. Library Journal also publishes an annual salary survey and breaks the data down by library type.
As with all salaries, there are a number of variables reflected in these ranges, including, among others, the region where the job is located, the size of the employer (e.g., large vs small), the nature of the employer (for example, for-profit vs nonprofit), the level of responsibility and/or expertise involved, and whether additional benefits round out your total compensation.
