COST OF SURVEY RESULTS
Is there a cost to obtain the results of the NEO-RLS Statewide Salary Survey?
Yes. Libraries that want the results of the NEO-RLS Statewide Salary Survey will participate in sharing the costs of the survey.

How are libraries being charged if they want to obtain the results of the NEO-RLS Statewide Salary Survey?
Libraries will pay to obtain results based on a cost-sharing plan that factors in number of participants along with membership in a regional library system, completion or non-completion of the survey in terms of submitting salary data and library revenue for those who are not members of a regional library system.  The goal is to make the results of the survey affordable to all libraries, even our smallest libraries.
