Answer:

The principle of "every reader his or her book" is complicated by the massive amount of information available online. While the information needed by a given user may exist in the digital world, its presence can be easily obscured by the sheer amount of information retrievable via search engines. The librarian thus becomes a valuable resource, as he or she possesses the skills to better seek out signal among the noise, and is able to provide resources that may be more helpful than a general search engine.

Subject: Folklore and Mythology

Answer:

The legend of the Vanishing Hitchhiker continues to evolve in both its secular and religious versions. A common secular form involves a driver picking up a young woman in formal attire who asks for a ride home. En route to the address, the driver passes a graveyard and suddenly finds the passenger has disappeared from the car. He continues to the address and finds it occupied by the young woman's parents, who reveal that she was killed in a car accident at some time in the past. In a common religious variant, the driver picks up a passenger who engages in pleasant conversation. After driving some distance, the passenger tells the driver to prepare for the imminent Second Coming, at which point they disappear from the car.
