Salary and Job Information

This page contains a statistical summary of Job Postings for 2000. Current job notices are posted outside of the LTA coordinator's office, SRC 3036.

Notices are collected from four local library system newsletters and from job ads sent directly to the LTA Coordinator. The Job Board is used to assist students with their job search and to demonstrate what types of jobs are available, what the duties and requirements are, and what salaries are being offered.

Not all ads contained salary info. The data is compiled to provide a snapshot of the library assistant job market in the Chicago metropolitan area.
