Hi, I am trying to create a collection with multiple authors minus a few resources.

I thought this formula would work:

author:N. T. Wright AND James D. G. Dunn AND E. P. Sanders AND Don Garlington AND Scot McKnight -title:everyone

How do I add multiple authors in one collection?

Thank you!

author:N. T. Wright AND James D. G. Dunn AND E. P. Sanders AND Don Garlington AND Scot McKnight -title:everyone

With this string you are requesting only resources that are authored by all of these people - whereas I think you are looking for resources that are authored by any of them.

Try "author:("N.T. Wright", "James D. G. Dunn", "E. P. Sanders", "Don Garlington", "Scot McKnight") -title:everyone"

oh that makes sense. Thank you so much!

Is there any place I can learn about Logos' codes for research?

What do you mean by "Logos codes"?

WHen you run a search you are basically typing a code. A Bullean code that differs slightly and is more powerful than a Bullean code search on EBSCO for example. I want to know what are the parameters and how to combine them.

Have a look at https://wiki.logos.com/Search_HELP and the linked pages under “See Also”

Also there is a useful section on Searching in the Logos 7 helpfile which you should have in your Library

For collection creation, Library filtering is useful. Logos Help => https://ref.ly/logosres/logos4help?hw=Library+Filter+Fields includes:

Note: Help also includes Search. Logos and Verbum have many search options and nuances.

Logos wiki has => Library , => Collections , => Example Collections , and => Canonical Commentary Collections

Internet search for Bullean suggested similar sounding Boolean. Searching for Bullean in my Logos library had zero results while found many results for boolean.
