I know there are issues with the individualized update page.  In need of some clarification.

 

I had Leaders in Libronix... Upgraded to Leaders in L4....  Then to Gold L4...

I notice that Gold L5 DOES NOT have many of the resources in the leaders library from L4 (for example under Ministry) Did Gold L4 not have those?  I thought it did. 

If this is the case... I wonder how many resources do not make it over to the L5 packages?  I know I get to keep them if I have them, that is not my issue.  I am curious how this all plays out in MY personalized upgrade price.

First you're right. There are some resources that were pulled from the base packages primarily because the publisher did not want Logos to sell them that way any longer. If you already have them, you keep them.

If you upgrade, your price includes those resources that would be new to your library and the new databases L5 contains

There is not much continuity between L4 packages and L5 ones with the same name  (Bronze is the rough equivalent of Scholar's). So if you have Gold L4 consider Silver L5 in terms of new resources and L5 features. BUT you will only pay for resources you don't currently own whilst retaining the ones you have from previous packages/ purchases.

Added note... when selecting "new to you" feature on upgrade page I notice it is not correct.  It is saying many of the resources are new to me when in fact I already "own" them.  I would warn anyone looking at that to keep this in mind.

There have been some questions about that already and Logos is looking at how to present that information better. For example I have most of the NAC volumes, but there are some new ones I do not have, therefore the "new to me" column shows the NAC would be new. Logos has assured us the volumes we already own are considered in the upgrade calculation.

I thought I had found some listed that I already owned, but further investigation revealed my mistake. For instance, I have 35 volumes of the College Press commentary series, but the one in the package contains 40 volumes. Dan Pritchett posted in another thread that they did not have a way to show the partial ownership in that little icon.

Perhaps this explains what you see.
