German to English translations [PRO] Bus/Financial - Cinema, Film, TV, Drama / video libraries
German term or phrase:Videothekar
Please don't tell me it is the type of word I could check in a dictionary. I already tried, to no avail.
I do not have a television, never visit a cinema and do not know anything about films and videos. I have established that this word is probably a relatively new creation, analogous to "Bibliothekar". However, I simply do not know what a person in charge of a video library is called in English. I just need to know the proper word for such a person.
Any feedback now that you have closed the question? Your original criterion was as follows: “… a person in charge of a video library.” You appear to have selected a rather grandiose title for a shop assistant.
Maybe I'm a bit too specific, but I would contact the named organization, and ask whether their members include media sourcing professionals, ie. 'new' media librarians, or if the membership is limited to retail clerks, then choose clerk or librarian
