You no doubt have at least one bookshelf (probably more) in your home or office for print books. If you’re like me, those bookshelves get filled, yet you keep buying books and soon you start lying books one on top of the other. Before long I can’t find a specific book I’m looking for. Imagine for a moment if that bookshelf contained a voice activated booklocator. You say something like: Pursuit of God by Tozer. Then instantly that book sprang from the shelf.
Perhaps that’s wishful thinking for print books, but not with our Logos Bible Software 4 e-books.
First of all, you have an electronic bookshelf called the Library. Click the Library icon on the toolbar to open it. You can learn to use the Library by watching one of our training videos.
For now, notice the Find box in the Library. This is the locator we just imagined. You can type practically anything in the box.
Type ESV to find any resource with ESV in any of its bibliographic data such as title, publisher, and so on.
This is where it gets fun, though:
Type title:twelve and the word twelve has to be in the title of the book.
Or type title:twelve AND author:bruce. Now twelve must be in the title and Bruce must be in the author fields, respectively.
When you type that, you’ll discover A.B. Bruce’s book Training of the Twelve will spring from the bookshelf right into your hand! This is what we just imagined. You’ll never lose another book with Logos Bible Software 4.
