>From where I sit, I would recommend something that retains Library in the
title. A few years ago we changed our name from Learning Lab to
Instructional Media Resources, thinking to "upgrade" our name. We are a
totally separate operation from the main library on campus, and there are
still faculty on campus who have no clue that we are a media library. I
would really like to change our name to Media Library, but changing names
too often creates problems as well.
Good luck,
