Academic Librarian Salaries in Colorado 1995-96

How well are academic librarians paid in Colorado? The answer to that question depends on the particular higher education institution and the type of librarian position. At many institutions, librarians in many positions are paid well above average compared to regional and national norms, but others are not so well paid, and Colorado’s highest salaries pale in comparison with top salaries in neighboring states and throughout the country.

This report presents the results of a recent LRS survey for selected positions and compares them with the high, mean (average), and median (middle) salaries reported in the West and Southwest and all U.S. regions in the 1995 edition of the ALA Survey of Librarian Salaries. The 6 types of positions covered by this report are: director, deputy/associate/assistant director, department/branch head, reference/public services librarian, cataloger and/or classifier, and beginning librarian.
