Abstract

Research and writing processes require the exploration, comprehension, synthesis and integration of information from multiple sources. Story Fountain provides intelligent support for the exploration of digital stories. The suite of functions provided in Story Fountain together support the investigation of questions and topics that require the accumulation, association or triangulation of information across the story archive. Story Fountain provides specific support toward this end such as for comparing and contrasting story concepts, the presentation of story paths between concepts, and mapping relationships across stories such as who met whom and who lived where.
