What's in a name?

Apologies for cross-posting!!!

Hi  All

Is the professional title 'Librarian' a little old -fashioned these days?
I'd be interested to know about alternative names for your professional
posts in the serials ( in all formats) library world. I'm actually quite
proud to be a serials and inter-lending librarian - my work encompasses
all sorts of serials - print , electronic , and inter-library loans and
other document delivery. However I think I'm the only 'librarian' left on
the staff here. Everyone else is an advisor or manager (but this term is
reserved for heads of our library depts which isn't me). We wondering what
else might fit the bill. 'Administrator' is one suggestion or how about
'co-ordinator'? I certainly do a lot of co-ordinating in my job!!! All
suggestions gratefully received but don't all rush at once.... Replies to
me PERSONALLY please - if you spare the lists I'll summarise for you.

Thank you for indulging me.
