The ARLIS/NA 2004 Art/Architecture Librarians and Visual Resource Professionals Compensation Survey consists of fundamental and contextual questions about art/architecture/design librarians, as well as visual resource professionals and their associated compensation levels, incorporating a broad range of institutions throughout North America. The purpose of the compensation survey was to summarize the compensation ranges and duties performed by professionals specializing in these subject areas. The types of settings chosen for the focus were chosen for their similarity of subject matter and duties performed within a specialized subject area and client base. The survey provides users with a much more accurate representation of current pay levels for Art, Architecture and Visual Resource professionals in U.S. and Canadian visual resource settings of all types, and may serve as a valuable management and research tool.
