Tough Report on Job Placement & Salary Information for Librarians

library304The Library Journal has released a report about placements and salaries for library and information science graduates in 2013.

The report highlights two major problems facing librarians around the country: it is difficult to find a job and the salaries can barely pay for the cost of a librarian’s education.

Annoyed Librarian wrote a post about the situation:

Those details aren’t good. The saddest table has to be table 3, total graduates and placements by school. If you’re thinking about library school and are concerned about placement rates, definitely take a look at this. If you’ve been a librarian for a long time and want to know how different things are from when you graduated, also take a look and rejoice that you don’t have to face the market these grads have to face today.

If you are looking for another perspective on the future of librarians, check out our What Makes a Good Librarian? post, where veterans share tips for aspiring librarians.
