I don't want to setup too many collections if they slow down the search.  I remember Rosie said in another thread that too many collections would slow down the search

The question is if you have the same definition of "too many" as Rosie has. I believe she has about 150-250 collections. How many do you have?Smile

Plus I don't know when you read that. They may have optimized things a bit since then.

And it also depends on the computer specs, of course.

Hi fgh,,not only does she have many collections but also she has a huge library, Smile.  I am thankful for many seasoned logos users like Rosie who spends time helping new users.

Note: If join Faithlife group Logos Collections, can freely copy Collections by clicking Get Copy to the right of the desired document name followed by synchronizing Logos. Alternative is Select All then Action => Get Copies

Currently Collections has 300 shared documents: primarily dynamic rules using metadata plus some manual additions.

Personally have 337 collections, which can take some time to appear in drop down list in search (along with series and mytags) plus take awhile to scroll to desired one.  Search seems to function fine using 3rd Generation i7 with Solid State Disk (SSD).

I am not sure of the context in which Rosie made the comment so won't say she was wrong,  but I would say many collections slow the display of drop down lists but I don't know if they slow down an actual search.  If she see's this thread maybe she can further explain the comment.

Yes, it was that many collections slow the display of dropdown lists, and if I said it it was only because I was repeating what Bradley had told me when I was complaining that my dropdowns were really slow to drop down (like half a minute or more). Anyway, Logos has vastly improved the speed of display of dropdown lists now, to the point where I hardly notice it anymore and have no complaints.

Lots of collections doesn't, as far as I know, have anything to do with search speed.

Thank you everyone for clearing up my misconception.  It is good to know having many collections in Logos won’t slow down the searchSmile.

I personally have become convinced of the value of doing this. Here is the tagging system I use - 3750.My Tagging System for Logos.docx

I appreciate that I am very late to this, but I just wanted to thank you for your work with this list. I have just embarked on tagging my library and this will be hugely helpful.

Thank you again.

Well done Andy! You will not regret doing the work but will reap the benefits afterwards.

Personally use a mixture of library tagging and dynamic rules for collections.  New library resources have myrating of 0 (while community rating can be different):

When have verified a resource is in desired collection(s), then change rating to 2 stars.  Personally like English resources to be in 5 or more collections since have 4 largish collections:

  • English Library without Bibles
  • English Library without Commentary
  • English Library without Perseus
  • Language:English

If a resource is not in desired collection(s), then have two options: modify collection(s) to include resource or add tag(s).

Thankful for Rosie's ratings => http://community.logos.com/forums/p/4363/157779.aspx#157779

Rosie Perera:
0 stars - just purchased, haven't had time to do anything with it yet (though I usually do them right away so they don't stay in this state for very long)
1 star - I really don't think this resource is very valuable and would usually chose to ignore it, but I don't dislike it enough to hide it
2 stars - the rating I assign to everything as soon as I buy it, which means basically "I don't know yet what I think of this"
3 stars - good
4 stars - very good
5 stars - outstanding, one of my favorite resources

When have an opinion about a resource, then change rating appropriately.

Keep Smiling Smile
