Results from the United States Library Journal’s annual Placements & Salaries Survey of 1,789 library information science (LIS) graduates (37.3 percent of the approximately 4,790 graduates from 38 LIS programs in 2010) found that school libraries hired 15.3 percent of new LIS graduates in 2010, with the average annual income of $45,420. While that number is slightly up from 14.9 percent in 2009, graduates also spoke of their frustration in trying to break in to school systems, particularly if they didn’t have a teaching background before entering an LIS program.
