Nonuniversity Library Questionnaire and Instructions · 103


8. Salaries should be reported for both full-time and part-time professional positions. However,
salaries for part-time positions should be converted to their full-time equivalents before reporting; do
not report the actual part-time salary paid.
9. Salaries should normally be reported on a 12-month basis. If an appointment is for 9 or 10 months at

However, if appointments of less than 12 months are required by the employer, report the actual
salary paid.
10. The salaries for all professional positions should be included, regardless of whether the salaries
come from regular library budget funds or from special funds such as research grants.
11. The salary figures should be straight gross salary figures. Do not include fringe benefits.
12. Explanatory footnotes to the reported figures may be provided when necessary. Footnotes will be
included in the published survey.
13. Provide the name of the reporting library and the name of the person who prepares the report.
