LJ received responses either through the institutional survey or individuals representing 41 of the 50 LIS schools surveyed in the United States and from 1,898 of the 6,184 reported LIS graduates. The University of Michigan and the University of Texas at Austin prepared their own surveys.
Schools were provided with the choice of responding by paper or electronic survey, with most choosing the electronic format. Some graduates and schools reported incomplete information, rendering some data unusable. For schools that did not complete the institutional survey, data was taken from graduate surveys and thus is not a full representation of all graduating classes.
We are pleased that some schools that were unable to participate in the past were able to do so this year, including St. Catherine University.
The following schools declined to participate, did not respond to calls for participation, or had no graduate participation: University of Arizona; Clarion University, PA; University of Denver; Emporia State University, KS; University of Hawaii; University of Maryland; North Carolina Central; North Carolina Greensboro; and Valdosta State University, GA. The Canadian programs, including Alberta, British Columbia, Dalhousie, McGill, Montreal, Toronto, and Western Ontario, conduct their own annual salary and placements surveys and do not participate in the LJ annual survey. The University of Puerto Rico does not participate.
