First, I really like Logos 5, especially the Clause Search, so thank you to Bob and the team at Logos. Second, I also like the Bibliography feature. However, I have experimented with it and it seems to be deficient with regards to bibliogaphic information on articles. In SBL Handbook of Style, for a bibliographic entry on an article in an encyclopedia or other book, one needs the author of the article, the title of the article, and only then the title of the encyclopedia and the rest of the bibliographic information. Is there a way for the Bibliography tool to achieve this (the information is availabe in the Logos version of the encyclopedias, so it should be retrievable)?

I'm also having trouble with Turabian format and connection with Endnote on an RIS file.  Doesn't seem to be working properly...  I end up having to fix all of the imported references.

With bibliographic information, a lot depends on how the resources are tagged. They are working on retagging older resources, and also on improving the new Bibliography tool.

That makes sense, the Bibliographic information on the resources I am specifically talking about is correct, however the RIS output from logos to use with other software does not correctly format it for Turabian.

Logos have indicated that they are planning to add this functionality to the Bibliography tool, when resources support it. No date was given, however.
