The decrease in the number of professionals reported (decreased from 2008–2009) is not the result of lost positions. It stems from our
having looked more closely at which staff members were classified as professionals. The examination revealed that a certain level of staff
that we have consistently counted as support staff when responding to the ARL Annual Survey were being counted as professional staff
when responding to the Salary Survey. In order to be consistent and to accurately portray our libraries, we have now corrected this.
The D.B. Weldon Library, Business Library, Education Library, Music Library, Allyn & Betty Taylor Library are included in this survey.
