This interactive session will present results from a study of librarians’ experience with and perspective on compensation and benefits negotiation in libraries. Speakers will focus on responses from law librarians working in law libraries and compare them to a pool of national results across all library types. There is a significant body of research on negotiation, but little research specific to the library workplace. The goal is for this information to help grow law librarians’ confidence, skill, and comfort with negotiating in the law library workplace through increased awareness of negotiation success rates, scope of negotiation topics, and variables impacting outcomes.
