Hello Electronic Resource Librarians!

My current role has me doing electronic resource management. I have found
this experience challenging and I am doing the work of 'learning on the
job'. Somewhat for my own amusement, I began keeping a list of words or
concepts or phrases that I have encountered in my work, with the thought
that it would nicely summarize the things that this job encounters and
therefore requires knowledge of. I wonder if anyone would look at my list
below and from the things thereupon, can you tell what degree or
certificate or study program a person has to have done in order to know
about all these things?  I'm hoping to succinctly identify what field of
study this all belongs to. I'd like to know what program would have a
learning outcome of knowing about all this. I've looked at computer science
programs, but that doesn't seem to fit just right.
So, here's my list. What discipline does this all belong to? Just curious!
Sincerely, Carissa
