Tools such as google news and flipboard exist to convey daily news, but what about the news of the past? In this paper, we describe how to combine several existing tools and web archive holdings to convey the “biggest story” for a given date in the past. StoryGraph clusters news articles together to identify a common news story. Hypercane leverages ArchiveNow to store URLs produced by Story-Graph in web archives. Hypercane analyzes these URLs to identify the most common terms, entities, and highest quality images for social media storytelling. Raintale then takes the output of these tools to produce a visualization of the news story for a given day. We name this process SHARI (StoryGraph Hypercane ArchiveNow Raintale Integration). With SHARI, a user can visualize the articles belonging to a past date’s news story.
