This short, anonymous survey will take less than 10 minutes to complete and the results will be posted in the Members Only area of aalt.org. This data, along with that of previous surveys, assists Alberta's library technicians with benchmarking, salary reviews and contract negotiations.

The survey will be open until 12am on May 22nd. If you have any questions regarding the survey please contact membership@aalt.org.
