Jessica,
I'll add my vote to the Media Librarian moniker. On our campus, when
material addressed as such ends up in the "print" library, it finds its way
to me fairly quickly. The Post Office folks translate audiovisual into
equipment checkout and repair (or whatever strikes their fancy at the
moment) where such things can get permanently misplaced.
Good luck,
Gail
