In 2019, AMIA launched its first survey of the audiovisual archiving field. This was followed by a revised study in 2020, the AMIA Annual Salary & Demographics Survey of the Field. The panelists will discuss how these studies were informed by similar surveys commissioned by the Society of American Archivists, American Alliance of Museums, and American Library Association. Like these other studies from our allied cultural heritage professions, the AMIA surveys demonstrate that diversity is lacking in our field and that we will need to make serious and deliberate efforts to fix this. The panelists will discuss some of the actions that AMIA has already taken in response to this. Additionally, the panelists will highlight salary trends for the media archives profession, discuss how salary transparency has been a positive development in other fields, and present data on how the COVID-19 has impacted media archivists’ working styles and career stability.
