293. Mole - disambiguate https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25mole_Animal, because a "mole" is not a "mole rat" or a "rat" or a "shrew".

294. Dead Sea - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25DeadSea_Place & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25SaltSea_Place

295. Sea of Galilee - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25SeaOfGalilee_Place & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25SeaOfTiberias_Place & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25LakeOfGennesaret_Place

296. Rock - disambiguate https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%24rock - a rock is not "stoning"! Stoning has its own article: https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25stoning

297. Nicodemus the Hagiorite - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.nicodemusthehagiorite & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25SaintNicodemusoftheHolyMountain_Person & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.nicodemosoftheholymountain_1

298. Severus of Antioch - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.severusantioch & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25Severus1._Person [Note that one of the two EAC entries in the Dictionaries section of the latter is https://ref.ly/logosres/ncyncntchrstnty?hw=Severus, who is a different person who needs a Factbook article that should probably be called "Severus (Encratite Heretic)". I look forward to the day when the EAC is allowed to provide the Factbook with Key Articles.]

299. Saint Epiphanius of Salamis - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.EpiphaniusSalamis & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.saintepiphanius

300. Dorothy Day - correct https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25DorothyDay_Person to show that she was a woman, not a man!

301. Feast Days & Feria - Absurdly, https://ref.ly/logosres/odcc?hw=Feria is presently tagged to show up as a dictionary entry for Feast Days ( https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25feastDays ) even though that very article correctly explains that a day that is not a feast day is by definition a feria, the reverse also being true; this entry also does not show up under the actual Factbook article for Feria ( https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25feria ).

302. https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.massfirstchurchsalem_1 & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.massthirdchurchboston_1https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.masslowellhebrewclublowell_1 are articles with broken names.

303. Holy Roman Empire - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.holyromanempire_1 & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25holyRomanEmpire & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%40HolyRomanEmpire

304. John the Deacon - disambiguate https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25JohnTheDeacon_Person. As the Catholic Enyclopedia makes clear, there were four men by this name. (Actually more.) Better to disambiguate them properly now rather than later when the mess may be much bigger. See also https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.johndeacon

305. Either rename https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25SaintLaurentiusJustinianus.1_Person as "Saint Lawrence Justinian", which I think is the better option, or at least add it as an "Also:" No one will ever search for "Saint Laurentius Justinianus", and no one who searches using his English name can find him in the Factbook.

Major thanks @SineNomine and others for continuing to point out these issues for us! Please rest assured we're working on them. 

SineNomine:

Our current approach is to split Preaching Themes from other concepts: they're different enough that joining them can lead to confusion. We're still actively thinking about the best way to connect this information. 

SineNomine:

243. Most Cultural Ontology entities are sentence cased (e.g., https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=lco.Social_offenses ) whereas most of the rest of the Factbook's concepts are not (e.g. https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?txt=social ).

I believe a recent release has shipped title case corrections for the Cultural Ontology, but please speak up if you find other title casing errors.

SineNomine:

252. Canon - disambiguate https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25canon , which is a complete mess (look at the dictionary articles).

Agreed that this concept needs substantial review. We'll continue working down this larger list of improvements. 

SineNomine:

274. With the addition of the Catholic Encyclopedia to the Factbook, many new duplicate articles for popes have been created. They can be easily found by searching "pope from" (e.g., Pope Saint Zachary - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25SaintZacharias_Person & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25PopeZachary_Person )

We rushed to get this resource out for Verbum users, so looks like we missed some merging: we'll review these.

I wasn't sure about this; some things are split and some aren't, so it's nice to have more clarity on what is supposed to be split.

Will do.

I appreciate having the resource and have no problem with the fact that it was rushed to get it out before Christmas. Much appreciated, in fact.

306. Oswald Thompson Allis (American Old Testament Scholar) - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25OswaldThompsonAllis_Person & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.oswaldtallis_1

307. Correct name of https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.arthurwestcott_1 to Arthur Westcott (remove the ".")

308. Merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.fbwestcott into https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.frederickwestcott unless the F & B got swapped and it's actually https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25BrookeFossWestcott_Person (I can't tell from my library).

309. https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.catholicchurchnationalconferenceofcatholicbishopsa_1 was renamed to https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.unitedstatesconferenceofcatholicbishops_1 , so I'm inclined to suggest merging it under the latter name.

310. Correct name of https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25CongregationForTheCausesOfSaints to Congregation for the Causes of Saints. Also, reclassify it; it's not merely a Concept.

311. Congregation for the Propagation of the Faith - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25CongregationofPropagandaFide & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25sacredCongregationOfPropaganda (This time I make special note of the implied name change in the label for this one; keep the two present names in Also:, please.) Also, not a Concept.

312. Sacred Congregation of Rites - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.sacredcongregationofrites_1 & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25CongregationofSacredRites 

313. Pontifical Biblical Commission - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25PontificalBiblicalCommission & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.pontificalbiblicalcommission_1

314. Codex Vaticanus - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25Vaticanus_Writing & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bibms.3.10002 & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bibms.1.20003

315. Daniel Whyte III - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.danielwhyteiii & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.whytedanieliii

316. https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.iiijohn_1 is messed up and I can't be sure what it's meant to refer to.

317. Alter name of https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.ignatiusyaqubiii to Ignatius Ya'qub III. Consider adding Ignatius Jacob III as Also:.

318. Flavius Magnus Aurelius Cassiodorus Senator (Roman writer, statesman, and monk) - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25Cassiodorus_Person & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25FlaviusMagnusAureliusCassiodorusSenatorCassiodorus_Person

319. Remove First Vatican Council as an Also: from https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25Quirinus and then merge with https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25JohannJosephIgnazVonDollinger_Person, keeping the name Johann Joseph Ignaz Von Döllinger (Bavarian Church Historian).

320. Remove the Key Passage from https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25Quirinus_Deity, because this article is about a Roman god, not a Roman governor of Syria.

See https://community.logos.com/forums/t/198085.aspx for a report of a needed disambiguation that comes from the significant difference between a crowd of people and wine press.

321. Richard Rufus of Cornwall (Oxford Franciscan) - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25RichardOfCornwall_Person & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.richardrufuscornwall

322. Cornwall - merge https://ref.ly/logosres/eerdencycaa?hw=Cornwall & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%40Cornwall

323. Correct name of https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25AlexandreAntonineTache.1_Person to Alexandre Antonine Taché (Canadian Prelate). Note the accent.

324. Palmyra - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25Palmyra_Place & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25Tadmor_Place

325. Antwerp - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25Antwerp_Place & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%40Antwerp

326. Quebec - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%40Quebec & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25Quebec_Place

327. Correct https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25SaintCuthbertMayne_Person to Saint Cuthbert Mayne (Martyr). The present stuff in brackets in the name of this article is embarrassingly misleading.

328. Seminary - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25seminary & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25ecclesiasticalSeminary

329. Wilfrid Henry Isaacs - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.wilfridhenryisaacs_1 & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.wilfridhisaacs

330. Capitalize at least "Cistercian" in the names of https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25Beatrix.1_Person, https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25GelasiusOCullenan_Person, https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25AdamOfPerseigne_Person & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25BerthaDeMarbais_Person

331. Joachim of Fiore (Cistercian Abbot and Mystic) - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25JoachimOfFlora_Person & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.JoachimFiore

332. General/widespread issue: it is at least normal for Factbook Person entries that originate with the arrival of the Catholic Encyclopedia to provide sentence casing in brackets, unlike standard practice for Person entries from other books. This is especially problematic when the first word of what is or should be in brackets is proper. See https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?txt=jesuit for numerous examples. Compare the origins of the "Jesuit" entries to those of the  "jesuit" ones. The word "Jesuit" is always capitalized, whether a noun or an adjective. (See also 330. above.)

333. Johannes Valentinus Andreae - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.johannesvalentinusandreae & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25JohnValentineAndreae.1_Person

334. Valentin Thalhofer (German theologian) - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25ValentinThalhofer_Person & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.valentinthalhofer

335. Split https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.johnnymeltonbobbyvalentinejohnmarkhicks_1 into its three constituent people.

336. Valentin Ernst Löscher - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25ValentineErnestLoescher.1_Person & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.valentinernstloscher

337. Lifespan of John Vianney - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.tle%3alifejohnvianney1 & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.tle%3alifejohnvianney (I don't know what your standards are for merging timeline events, but these two are identical as far as I can tell, so it makes no sense for there to be two of them in Factbook.)

338. Ernst Friedrich Karl Rosenmüller - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.ernstfriedrichkarlrosenmuller_1 & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.ernfridcarrosenmuller_1

339. Pedro Calderon de la Barca (Spanish dramatist) - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25PedroCalderonDeLaBarca_Person & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.pedrocalderondelabarca

340. Divide https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.nestorravilasandwilfredolaceda_1 into two people.

343. John Ankerberg - correct denomination of https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.johnankerberg; being born in 1945 does not make you Pre-Reformation.

344. For that matter, these entities don't belong to that denomination's targeted timeframe either: https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.alianzaevangelicamundial, https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.jhbernard, https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.nealjanthony.

345. It's misleading (and potentially rather offensive) to put a bunch of medieval Catholic Saints like Thomas Aquinas and Catherine of Siena in a denomination with both a classification and an Also: of "Proto-Protestantism". See and fix https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25PrereformationPostschism_Denom

This is discouraging given that i'd reported it multiple times prior to L9's release ...

The results for searching the "Cost of Discipleship" give me The Cost of Discipleship (Audio) by Bonhoeffer which I don't have, but not the text version which I do have in his works volume 4 called Discipleship. But volume 4 does appear as a result when the Factbook search is just Discipleship. I forgot that the The Cost of Discipleship is the English version title of the original German title Discipleship. 

So just as observation of how the Factbook could offer better first time results in situations like this.

352. Saint Sava of Serbia - disambiguate between the Serbian patriarch and St. Sabbas (from Cappadocia) in https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25SaintSava_Person with regard to https://ref.ly/logosres/cathency?hw=St.+Sabbas

Andrew Batishko (Faithlife):
I recommend using the Copy Location as URL option from the Factbook panel menu.

Sorry but I can't resist. I suggest that the Respond section be added to Factbook pages so that one can report the problem where you find it and the URL is handled automatically.  But I am too old and too polite to say "I told you so ..."Devil

We've had a lot of discussion about how to best capture user feedback, but this didn't make it in time for launch. I expect you'll see an improvement here in the near future.

There's functionality planned for release with 9.4, though I'm not sure what will actually get released.
