Results of the AALL/Altman Weil Compensation Satisfaction Survey

CHARGE: The Special Committee on Law Librarian Compensation will solicit and examine strategies used by chapters, SISs and other library associations to gather information and
improve salaries of librarians; they will identify successful efforts to educate employers and influence salary decisions. The Special Committee will also serve as an information clearinghouse for the purpose of gathering and disseminating information on methods used to improve the compensation of law librarians in all work settings. This may include the development of a coordinated approach to addressing the issue by individuals, chapters, and the Association. The Special Committee will investigate the feasibility of working with other groups, especially the Association of Legal Administrators and the Altman, Weil company, to influence the content of their salary surveys - especially in comparison with other professionals who possess similar education and work experience - and promote the Association's own salary survey. The Special Committee may take into account the costs and benefits of coordinating AALL's strategies with those of other library or law-related associations or related organizations. 

This Special Committee will continue the efforts of the earlier committee, appointed by President Barbara Bintliff, that reported to the Executive Board in April, 2002. The Special Committee will report to the Board no later than its first meeting in July, 2003.

The Chair of the Special Committee will serve as the AALL liaison/representative to the American Library Association's 2002-2003 Initiative on Librarian Compensation the Task Force on Better Salaries and Pay Equity.

 SIZE: Six members plus a chair.
