We developed a multiple document summarization system GOLD. This system generates a single summary from relevant newspaper articles with any summarization rate specified by a user. GOLD is incorporated a number of methods to summarize. In particular, some methods for sentence reduction are useful to shorten each sentence. As a result, it increased the number of outputted sentences which include important information. We participated in task B of NTCIR3 TSC2 to evaluate this system. GOLD exhibits a good performance in content-based evaluation which suggests that summarization methods employed by GOLD are promising for practical use.
