The Real LIfe Savers

Susan  Kreimer from the Dallas Morning News writes in her article, Physicians Find Librarians Vital
"An explosion in health care informatics has ratcheted up the call for librarians on the cutting edge of technology and medical advances." 
The job description…."Informationists go on rounds with the health care team, assess information needs for clinical care, and provide evidence-based analysis of appropriate literature for the team," according to Laurie Thompson, director of libraries at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas.
The average annual salary….$57,982. Hmmm, why does this strike me as EXTREMELY low?
