Abstract:

Based on the responses to the questionnaire as analyzed in the study, it can be seen that there were differences in membership and activity in professional organizations, publications, types of employment and salary among the graduates according to length of time since graduation. In all cases the more recent graduates were less active. Of the graduates who are still in the profession, 87 percent indicated their salary. Based on this group, it was found that those earning a higher salary tended to be men, members of professional library organizations, officers, employed in a college or university library as administrators or professors of library science, persons who had published and received additional education. Because of the number of graduates who did not answer the questionnaire, and those who did but did not give their salary, it is impossible to say that anyone who has any one of these characteristics would automatically receive a higher salary however, there is a clear trend in that direction.
