Recommender systems are becoming common tools supporting automatic, context-based retrieval of resources. When the number of retrieved resources grows large visual tools are required that leverage the capacity of human vision to analyse large amounts of information. We introduce a Web-based visual tool for exploring and organising recommendations retrieved from multiple sources along dimensions relevant to cultural heritage and educational context. Our tool provides several views supporting filtering in the result set and integrates a bookmarking system for organising relevant resources into topic collections. Building upon these features we envision a system which derives user's interests from performed actions and uses this information to support the recommendation process. We also report on results of the performed usability evaluation and derive directions for further development.
