OK, what does my title of Public Access Systems Coordinator day to you?

 To me, "Electronic Resources Librarian" implies that the person is managing licensed content.  This usually includes things like vendor relations, licensing issues, the link resolver, federated search or discovery tool, possibly libpages.

"Digital Collections Librarian" could cover the same ground in theory, but in practice it often means managing content *owned* by library that is the process of being digitized, such as special collections material.  It would also include managing the system for accessing such content.

The title "Systems Librarian" covers a multitude of sins, but usually implies the person managing the ILS, at least at the application level and possibly at the server level.

Of course, you *could* take the ALA route and create a long title with and equally long acronym.  :)
