Does the word `cybrarian’ exist?

Yes, the word `cybrarian’ does exist; it’s been around for more than a decade. The word is a combination of `cyber’ and `librarian’. A `cybrarian’ is someone who makes use of the Internet as a resource tool. His job is to be in the know as to what is available on the web; he finds, collects, and manages whatever material is
available on the Net.

Example: Yukti constantly surfs the Net because it’s part of her job. She’s the new cybrarian.
