COLUMBIA — Most government records are open to the public at no charge. These records give citizens the opportunity to find out what's going on, how their elected officials are spending tax dollars, how the various departments within a governmental entity work and other valuable information needed to make strong decisions for the future. Each week, the Missourian highlights a government record that is available to the public. For a complete list of Show Me the Records, go to

The records: The St. Louis Post-Dispatch put together a database of the salaries of University of Missouri System employees. The current version of the database has figures from the 2012-13 school year. 

Why you'd want them: You can see where — and to whom — taxpayer money is going and which employees receive the most compensation from the UM System. The figures aren't current in some cases, but they give a good idea of the salaries of certain employees. 

Where you get the records: Go to Select first/last name, campus, department, position or pay range.

How much it will cost: The information is free.
