Library and Information Science Instructors


Earnings vary by the size of the school, by the type of school (public, private, women's only, for example), and by the level of position the library science educator holds. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, in May 2018, the median salary for library science educators was $71,560, with 10 percent earning $175,110 or more and 10 percent earningĀ $39,760 or less. Those with the highest earnings tend to be senior tenured faculty and those with the lowest are usually graduate assistants. Professors working at doctorate-granting institutions tend to have the highest salaries. Many professors try to increase their earnings by completing research, publishing in their field, or teaching additional courses.
