Today’s post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris has trained thousands of Logos users at his two-day Camp Logos training seminars and provides many training materials.
Logos users often ask me how to find a collection of resources in the Library that they purchased from Logos.com.
For example, let’s say you download the 15 volumes contained in the IVP New Testament Studies Collection. If you type IVP or Studies or Collection, in the Library’s Find box, your resources will not be listed. The reason is, IVP New Testament Studies Collection is just a marketing or working title Logos gives to these books it groups together.
The resources in this (or any) collection appear in the Library according to the actual title of the book, such as Is the New Testament Reliable? or Contextualization in the New Testament.
Using the Library’s Find box, there are a few ways to locate collections:
- To locate the books in the IVP New Testament Studies Collection type: publisher:Inter
- To find the A. W. Tozer Collection type: author:Tozer
- To display the Atonement Collection type: title:atonement
The key is to look at the individual titles contained in a collection as they appear on Logos.com, because this is how they will also appear in your Library. Just remember not to use the marketing title from the website which does not appear in your Library.
What collection or collections have you added to your library recently? For students, is there a particular collection you would love to have for this new semester?
