Gnosh is a social metasearch and aggregation tool, created and developed by academic technologists at Vassar and Allegheny Colleges. It supports searches across a variety of search engines and social services, then enables query histories, visualizations, and storage. Additionally, Gnosh works as social software by supporting search subscription and publication, leading to query-based conversations and emergent social networks. Gnosh emerged to address pedagogical, research, and support needs surfaced by a liberal arts colleges’ social software users group.
