Hi,

I recently heard Mike Heiser mention that he had tweaked his Logos library so that (for the most part) it only shows scholarly, peer-reviewed resources. For the time of academic and scholarly writing that I do, having my Logos resources set up in that way would be very helpful. Mike did not share how he did it so I am asking the Logos universe if anyone of you know how to go about setting up your library in that ay.
Thanks,
James

Hi,

Mark Barnes thread https://community.logos.com/forums/t/156378.aspx would be a good start I think.

It would help if you shared the source of the comment.

Whether you have cloud resources or not, Library will show all your resources by default. To limit the display "for the most part", you would have to filter Library and manually apply that filter each time you open Logos, because its setting is not preserved when you exit Logos.

jwsheets:
it only shows scholarly, peer-reviewed resources

I would assume that Heiser has a Feature Set(s) together with several bundles and base packages, so that tagging would be necessary to distinguish the "scholarly" resources. The source(s) of that review is unknown, but it is conceivable that it also influenced his individual/bundled purchases. 

Then you could filter Library from the Sidebar or the Find box for e.g. mytag:scholarly.

The alternative is to accept a shared or published Collection(s) of "Scholarly"/"Academic" resources based on titles in their Library. Then you could filter Library via the sidebar for Collections.

Agree with Dave; you'd have to tag (mytag). And, it'd be a process of combining adding (eg peer-reviewed journals) and then authors (adding, rejecting).

Then filtering by publishing date, depending on the area (overcome by time). Peer-reviewed, though? That's a very low bar.

Peer reviewed may be a low bar, but it is a bar.  It would be helpful if FaithLife added a "PeerReviewed" tag to journals that are peer reviewed.

Toward the end of Mark Barnes' post is a link to his "Technical Commentaries" Collection. One can easily add this collection to his/her own installation of L8 by searching "Public Resource Collections"
