Mike Binks:
Make sure one knows who one's library is to be bequeathed to and make sure that information is recorded in one's will.

Excellent advice. Some libraries would be valued at more than the price of a new car.

May I appeal to the owners to identify a worthy recipient in the event of the owner being called from this dimension.

I reckon that my library would be about 235 meters long if it was in print.

By Mike's formula (and Wolfram Alpha's handy reference tools), my 19k resource library is 1.4 times the height of the Eiffel tower.

I don't know, but it sure takes up a lot less space than my print one.

If I get rid of print books because I now have them in Verbum, does that mean my Verbum library is negative-sized? Stick out tongue

I have my will all set up to be able to pass along my library one day.   Our church had 8 regional universities in the USA and in my will my library is to be given to a graduating senior in the religion department of the regional university that is the closest to us, however the religion department decides.   

my library is a little shy of 40,000 books.

5564 and I have been buying resources for only about 4 years. I downloaded L6 for free in 2014 and didn't start buying anything for about 2 years and finally started out buying small base packages and have finally worked my way up to the Platinum with my L9 upgrade.

Total of unhidden books: 27,113

And there is no easy way of counting hidden books, but I have thousands of those. I paged down through all my hidden books, counting pages at 7 titles per page and got up to 200 pages worth (1400 titles) and was still in the middle of the A's. I hid nearly all the Perseus titles (>1000) and the Library of Early English History (>25,000) and Library of Early American History (~5000), because they were mostly clutter.

I had forgotten getting and hiding those. They were a real disappointment.

What many thought was a great idea when first available, turned out to be a nightmare the likes we had not seen before. I'm sure those kept a few customer service people busy taking back those licenses Wink

I too once had the Perseus collection. Rather then spend my time hiding them, when I decided they weren't for me, I called up customer service and they locked them up so I didn't have access to them any more. Problem solved.

The resource number is 19,771. Since there are books that have already been paid for and haven't been released yet, that ups it a bit.

Does anybody know the file extension format for video and audio resources?
