Users of information retrieval systems usually have to repeat the tedious process of searching, browsing, and refining queries until they find relevant documents. This is because different users have different information needs, but user queries are often short and, hence, ambiguous. In this paper we study personalized search in digital libraries using user profile. The search results could be re-ranked by taking into account specific information needs of different people. We study many methods
