The cover photo of a dangling carrot adds a touch of humor to this handbook for library professionals, staff, and human resources personnel, contrasting with the non-nonsense interior explaining how to conduct a salary survey, analyze the data, and use it to design a pay plan that fits an individual library's culture. The book provides library staff with an overview of the planning steps necessary before a compensation study begins, explains the compensation process so that library staff can understand the work of compensation consultants, and links compensation issues to broader organizational and strategic issues. A glossary is included, plus numerous checklists, worksheets, spreadsheets, templates, job descriptions, and salary surveys. This second edition offers new sample forms and real-world examples. New and updated topics include executive compensation, pay equity, salary compression, and employee communications. In addition to library staff, the audience for the book includes members of compensation review teams working in public, academic, and special libraries and the nonprofit sector. Singer and Francisco are affiliated with the Singer Group, a management consulting firm. Singer is a frequent speaker at ALA, PLA, and state library association conferences and events.
