Hey folks! I'm trying to create a collection called "Bibles Only". However, the minute the word "Bible" is a search term, that means, that, in my case anyway, the list of resources provided has 652 items in it, which isn't surprising since it's a Bible Study library... Stick out tongue

However, I now find myself having to do the "Minus these resources" for over 600 items, which are not Bibles, but commentaries and the like.

*Surely* there must be an easier way I'm not thinking of?

Let me know! Thanks in advance!

There is a complete article here, at the bottom of the page are some excellent examples for collection strings

Hi Carmen,

Click on Tools, then Collections, then New.

In the white box underneath "Start with resources matching:"
Put the following two words and you will have your collection.

type:Bible

If you want just Englsh Bible. Type in this:   Subject:Bible.--English

There will be only a few resources that will have to be taken out.

The string type:Bible includes Greek and English.

You could always just add the Bibles you want manually. I did that for all of my collections.
