With the amount of information that exists online, it is impossible for a student to find relevant information or stay focused on the domain under study. Research showed that search engines have deficiencies that might prevent students from finding relevant information. In this research, we are proposing a solution that takes the personal search history of a student into consideration and provides a holistic view of the domain under study. A bag-of-words for each searched keyword is created and used to query third-party APIs to find relevant papers and construct a Word Cloud. To archive this we built a user interface to present the aggregated results to the student. In order to evaluate our approach, we used some of the commonly used datasets and compared our results to existing research
