The authors launched the first Southeastern Federal Depository Coordinators Salary Survey in March 2011. The intent of the survey was less about salary comparison than it was about job responsibilities, qualifications, and education. From the results, the authors were able to extrapolate interesting and unexpected trends within their niche of librarianship. The diversity revealed through the project responses further reinforced the original idea that Government Information Librarians do not fall into a melting pot category.
