Stanford Grokker

Stanford Grokker is the result of an innovative partnership between Stanford University Libraries and Academic Information Resources (SULAIR) and Grokker. Grokker is a research and information management tool that simultaneously searches many data sources, and presents results in a topically organized, visual map.

Grokker is the flagship product of Groxis, Inc.; a privately held company backed by leading investors, founded in 2001.

Please note: The desktop version of Stanford Grokker is no longer being supported, and is not available for download. In March of 2009, Groxis ceased operations. For more information, please see Groxis CEO Randy Marcinfo’s comment about the financial situation of Groxis on Steve Arnold’s Beyond Search Web log.
