Logistics for Our Summer Work

This is enough to cover projected (# summer RAs)  x  (# weeks individual RAs indicated they would like to work) x (up to about 20 hours average per week, or less depending on RA's desired work time) x $15.50/hr.
  • Summer Work schedule:

    • Period 2 (roughly Summer A): July  
    • Period 3: (roughly Summer B): August to early Sept. 
  • Paperwork for being paid and timesheets
  • Team collaboration tools


Main summer RA tasks

  • Scoping Project (assisting Lindsay and Alan in research for strategizing corpus expansion)
  • Source Research Project (exploring database and other sources)
    • Periods 2 and 3
    • Output: reports on various sources
  • Harvesting Research Project (investigate methods of searching/downloading/scraping materials in coordination with technical work on WE1S ingest system)
    • Period 3
    • Output: recipes for harvesting; trial collections of sample materials
  • Word Embedding Feasibility Study Project (Teddy to do initial exploration of using word2vec for WE1S.)


Main Outcomes Desired by End of Summer

  • Detailed list (priority ordered or sequentially staged) of target sources for the upcoming, expanded phase of WE1S (prioritized)
  • Outline for future rationale statement of the criteria used to determine the representativeness and usefulness of chosen sources.
