How this story was constructed:
- As part of her work on "Generating Stories From Archived Collections", Yasmin AlNoamany requested that the Archive-It team assist expert archivists in selecting the best mementos from these collections. The archivists were given the following guidelines:
- The representative mementos should be selected from within the collection. There should not be any memento from outside the collection.
- The default value for the number of selected mementos is k ≈ 28. This value can be more or less based on the nature and size of each collection.
- We expect to have three generated stories out of each collection. Depending on the nature of the collection, some kinds of stories may not be applicable. For those collections, please specify if any of the previous kinds of stories cannot be created.
- You can choose a speciﬁc time period for generating the story. If the collection spans many years, you can choose a subset of the timespan of the collection.
- For selecting individual mementos:
- the language of the memento should be in English
- the memento should be on-topic (the content is related to the topic of the collection)
- the memento should produce a visually attractive snippet on Storify, an article (cnn.com/a/b/12/2015) is more preferred than a homepage (cnn.com)
- the memento should not be a (near-)duplicate of another memento in the list
- a memento with no missing resources is a better choice than a memento that is missing resources
- Hypercane performed the following steps:
- It gathered metadata from Archive-It's interface using Archive-It Utilities
- It formatted the data for the story based on this metadata report and the URI-Ms supplied by the expert archivists.
- Raintale took the input from Hypercane and rendered the final product with information supplied by MementoEmbed.
