The ongoing digitalisation of the learning process not only brings many advantages for learners but also poses new challenges like the increasing amount of information that need to be faced. This paper conceptually sketches a system employing and combining different existing Information Retrieval (IR) techniques to support digital learners. The system establishes a personal learning space including all learning content by building an appropriate index of learning material. In order to store learning content and allow an additional classification, adjusted to the specific needs of a single user, two supplementary index levels are created and connected to the primary index level. Different maintenance and search facilities allow an intensive use of this individiual structure. Summarising, a personalised learning service, meeting the challenges of modern learning, is delivered by extended searching capabilities.
