I’m starting to tag my monographs, and I figure I shouldn’t try to reinvent the wheel here.  I started with a group ‘church history,’   I soon saw the need to break it down into smaller groups.  I thought: apostolic (as in first century), ante nicean, middle ages, reformation, eastern, post-reformation, what – modern?

Would the tag read: church history: apostolic? 

I’m thinking also about what would happen if I feel the need to subdivide a group later on, how to minimize the work.

Any tips here?

Thank you

Wow. Very well done. Will definitely use this document. Thanks Bruce.

BTW, why doesn't Logos automatically make tags by VIPs into "Community Tags?" I think that would be very helpful, as they probably do the most tagging, and the most accurate tagging.

Bruce, where do you put ''Justification''?

Right now I'm just including it under "Salvation". I could have used "Soteriology" like is used in systematic theologies but I didn't go that route. If I ever want to add "Justification" as a technical tag I could do so.I must confess that I am not consistent either as I did use some systematic theology terms like "Bibliology". But all of these can be changed/improved at another time by simply selecting all the books in that collection and changing the tags all at one time.

One last thing. I'm very pleased that I spent the time to tag all of my books in my library. It was a lot of work at first but isn't that hard to keep it up to date now.
