Hi, I'm looking for an equivalent or translation for the German job title "Fachangestellter für Medien- und Informationsdienste". Basically, it's a professional who researches information, creates and maintains databases, organizes and structures archives and produces spreadsheets, etc.

They typically work in public libraries, at universities and research institutions, publishing houses, etc.

What would you call such a person? Many thanks, Torsten

Actually I think it is a librarian, but unfortunately, that term makes a very important job sound somewhat prosaic. How about "information specialist"? Here are a whole bunch of other job titles to choose from: http://www.sis.utk.edu/careers

I've down some more googling and have come up with this: media and information service specialists, with focus on librarianship

Sounds pretty stiff and German to me ;-)
