Real Life Library Job Titles

Wow. I didn't know there were so many different ways out there to describe us!

The beSpacific blog points to Real Job Titles for Library and Information Science Professionals, a compilation put together by writer Michelle Mach.

As she writes, "Job titles used to be fairly simple: Librarian, Cataloger, Director. The following job titles have been found in job listings in American Libraries, College and Research Libraries News, or have been sent to me by employed 'librarians'."

I noticed that my old title is not in the list. In an earlier job, I was a "Communications Librarian".

Do these titles mean anything to non-librarians? Or are we just trying to sound and look sophisticated? What does an Electronic Resources Access Specialist do anyway?
