I am struggling with the volume of books in here and finding myself wanting to hide many of them. Then I think I want one and really can't find a good way to remember if I have it and exactly what its name was. In other words I can't find it in the hidden list. I end up going to the package detail page and then looking at the product detail page.

An example is the Bunyan set. There are many great books but too many to have in the list all at once. Once they are down in the hidden list good luck identifying which one is which. Maybe when you mouse over them in the hidden window they could still show details and a thumbnail.

I was thinking that a page that showed an inventory of everything I should have available to me by its exact title would be very handy. If it already exists either in version 4 or on the account page of the site, please let me know where.

It's not a good idea to hide resources as a temporary measure as you only see the title! So hide only the ones you will not use.

If you organise your resources into collections you can obtain a bibliography from the Collection drop-down menu (under its icon) --> Export to bibliography ... A collection of all your resources can be made using  rating:>=0 in the Start with box.

For other ideas about viewing your resources see http://community.logos.com/forums/p/15946/121487.aspx#121487

go to Mark Barnes' page; he shows how to create a graphical report--showing your book covers on a nice "shelf."  Different ways to arrange them: by author, title, etc.  I really like it.  Clicking on the cover takes you to the book in Logos.  (I don't remember if I am "allowed" to link to his site.  But he appears in this thread (and many others) and his signature line has a link:

Dave's suggestion to do collections is extremely helpful for managing your resources.  I have different ones: counseling, family life, hermeneutics, etc.

I like Apples.  Especially Honeycrisp.

I will second that!

A much easier way to look at fewer books in your Library at a time is by filtering. You could use the ratings field to rate books you're not really interesting in looking at right now with only 1 star, and give everything else at least 2. (Save zero stars for new books you haven't had a chance to give a rating to yet; when you sort your library by rating in reverse order, that's a great way to find the ones you haven't rated yet.) You certainly won't have time to rate everything right now, so leave 2 stars to signify one that you do want to see in your library right now but haven't really assigned a rating to yet; then you can use 3, 4, and 5 stars to rate the ones you find more or less valuable from among your vast library.

Now to filter your Library, just type rating:>=2 in the Find box at the top of the library, and it will temporarily "hide" anything that doesn't match that criterion. You can filter by other fields too, for example if you just want to see all your commentaries use type:commentary. You can find all the filter fields (sometimes called "library search fields") listed here: http://wiki.logos.com/Library#What_are_the_search_fields_in_the_Library.e2.80.99s_find_box.3f
