Last year, Larry Reeves and I conducted a survey on IT staffing within law schools. You can see the raw data that we tabulated in February 2010. Perhaps this is useful info for the current discussion about staffing:
For several years, Ann Puckett regularly conducted an IT staffing survey. Larry and I updated her survey and wrote an article that has been accepted for publication in a forthcoming issue of Law Library Journal. We analyzed the results for 2002, 2006 and 2010 and identified staffing trends. Separate library and law school IT departments is the dominant trend.
Feel free to contact me if you have additional questions.
