Is there a way to drag multiple resources from the Library to a New Collection?

Dragging and dropping one at a time is a lot of work.

No, there is not another way.

Would building dynamic collections work for you? You can find help here.

Unfortunately there is not. You may want to try using dynamic collections (e.g. type:commentary AND title:"word biblical") This rule will capture all of the WBC commentary volumes.

Perfect!  Thank you!  I was actually putting the Collection Rules inside the Library.   But to put the rule dynamically inside the Collection pane is even easier!!!

Blessings,

DeWayne

If there are several books that you want to group together, without knowing what rule would work for grouping them, you can just select them all, give them a unique tag, and then use mytag:"bptsm" (in this case) as a rule, like this...

......

The rule should be mytag:bptsm for user-created tags. Use tag:bptsm for community tags. Same applies to myrating vs rating

tag and rating appear to work when the "Show Community..." Program Settings are set to "No".

Understood, however, if the tag is unique, it wont matter correct? Or I guess it may if another user eventually uses a similar tag down the road, then your collection will all the sudden display those newly tagged books as well.  (sorry, just thinking out loud)

Thanks Dave

If you show Community tags you come unstuck if other users have the same idea! My point is to provide an unambiguous/proper example for users in the forum.
