British information specialists and librarians in business information are recession‐proof, according to a new survey from TFPL. From a field of 600 professionals queried, TFPL found that 78% had had pay rises over the past year. Salaries and fringe benefits rose a whopping 18% on average over the eighteen months between April 1989 to October 1991. The majority had increases between 5–9% — however, a lucky few (17.5%) enjoyed rises of 10–25%. Given the economic climate, the proportion of survey participants who had recently received salary increases (78%) and the generosity of these increases seems to indicate that organisations are valuing their information specialists now more than ever, says TFPL.
