ACRL Works with CUPA-HR to Update Academic Library Position Descriptions

As a national authority on compensation for higher education professionals, the College and University Professional Association for Human Resources (CUPA-HR) conducts salary, benefits and benchmarking surveys. CUPA-HR has for many years collected and compiled survey results on salaries for Library Administrators, and Mid-Level Administrators and Professionals.  Data results from the surveys are regularly used by higher education institutions to establish and calibrate salaries of library professionals.  

ACRL began working with CUPA-HR in 2005, to periodically review and update library position descriptions and categories within these surveys according to changes in the professional field.  This organizational collaboration results in a revised CUPA-HR survey publication that offers more comprehensive academic library position descriptions.
