I just downloaded and installed Logos version 5.2a (5.2.1.0067)

Just want to say that I really like the new format of the library view that identifies the number of resources for each sub-category under each of the following columns: Type, Author, My Tags and Community Tags. It is now easy to tell how many resources you have right from the library view. For instance, I just noticed that I have 2248 Bible Commentaries. Wow, what a blessing that is for research.

Thanks for continually improving things Logos!

Agree!  Yes  I also like the enhancements added to the tag feature, even though the copy / paste for a tag is now not so obvious and includes an extra step.  I really like the changes made to the Library.  I still hope one day the Collections tool and Library will be one and the same.

'D' ... them's fightin' words.

Us taggers don't need collectives all over the place.  Ok maybe a tiny line in the library info view.  Plus a column maybe.  Not a big column.

But definitely if taggers don't get a gorgeous management panel like collectivers, than it's just not right for collectivers to hog the library.

.

More seriously I like the cover view but I'm having trouble tracking where the library thinks the 'current line' is (moving between views) when you page down.

Thanks for the note, Bruce.  Good to know.  I have this update on my laptop and Verbum (5.2.0.0136) on my desktop.  Verbum does not have this feature at present.  No updates for Verbum pending.

It would be good to hear from others what other differences there may be.

I'm assuming that in library view, "recent" and "most used" are titles that I have looked at?

@ Bruce: How did you notice that you have 2248 Bible Commentaries? 

Is there somewhere I/we can go to see how to use these new features?

Click on your Library Tab.  Click on Type (organize by type).  You should see a count next to each type.

@ Steve.

Ok got it. However, let me ask this. What's the advantage of having this?

I'm not Steve but I use the counts to determine when I want to split (or combine) collections in the Passage Guide

@ MJ 

So I guess you're not Steve? Good suggestion regarding splitting/combining collections.

This new library is a beautiful thing.  It makes so much more sense to me.  And it's fast.

Choose Type and you can see how many resources you have of each type.

@Milkman. This isn't Twitter and @ isn't necessary nor desirable when addressing someone. You can just as easily say, "Bruce. I see it. Thanks."
