You can move closer to landing that raise and advance the profession of law librarianship at the same time. Complete the AALL/Altman Weil, Inc. Compensation Satisfaction Survey to affect how law librarian salaries are determined by employers.

In conjunction with the American Association of Law Libraries and AALL's Special Committee on Law Librarian Compensation, Altman Weil Publications, Inc., an influential salary survey research firm, is surveying AALL members about their satisfaction with their compensation and related issues. Your responses will be kept strictly confidential. The data will be presented to AALL and its members in an Annual Meeting program in July and in the special committee’s report. With this data, law librarians will be armed with the information they need to justify their salary increases and other compensation requests to their libraries’ administrators.

To ensure that only law librarians complete the survey, every AALL member received an e-mail on Feb. 14 and Feb. 28 with the link to the online survey and the username and password needed to access the survey.

AALL urges its members to complete this important salary survey. In exchange for just a few minutes of your time now, you can help enhance the future of your profession and its pay scale.
