All this is a little off-topic, but: You do know that a lot of *faculty* at
smaller academic institutions make a lot less than $39,000? I've seen
Chronicle of Higher Education stories noting $26,000 salaries for lecturers
with PhDs...not that this excuses the frequently-absurd starting salaries
for librarians.

-walt c.-

A lot of PUBLIC libraries that I know of offer even less than that to an
entry-level librarian with an MLS. The way I figure it, a Master's in
library science will get you the equivalent of what a Bachelor's should get
you in the private sector. And, quite often, a bachelor's degree will get
you, in the library world, about what the rest of the world can expect with
a high school diploma or GED.

I wasn't going say anything, but I thought to myself when I read the
posting, that I wouldn't have wanted to invest in a Masters Degree only to
be offered $39,000...hmmm!!!
