I went to here:

 

http://wiki.logos.com/Example_Collections

 

But I can't see how to exclude Perseus. The example gives:

 

English Library without Perseus

  • Library Size: 4,096
  • Collection Size: 1,889 Excludes 825 Perseus
  • Rule:
  • Manually Included Items: {Language:English}
  • Manually Excluded Items: {Perseus}

 

What does that mean? There is no 'rule' I can copy and paste. Searches on how to manually exclude something come up blank. You can minus something by dropping it in the box, but how do I set up a collection so that I can search the library without searching Perseus?

ok I used language:english ANDNOT mytag:Classics and this seems to have worked - I named it Not Perseus just to be original.

It is easier to do this with the Greek texts by "language:Greek ANDNOT Perseus".

I believe that the manually included or excluded items were whole collections by those names.  Once you have your collection list dropdown open you can drag an entire collection into the plus or minus these resources area. So it is to be understood that you have already made the collections {Language:English} and {Perseus}.

Wiki => Example Collections now has:

English Library without Perseus

  • Library Size: 4,096
  • Collection Size: 1,889 Excludes 825 Perseus by including one collection and excluding another collection
  • Rule:
  • Manually Included Items: {Language:English}
  • Manually Excluded Items: {Perseus}

English Library without Perseus

  • Library Size: 4,096
  • Collection Size: 1,889 Excludes 825 Perseus via rule equivalent to including a collection while excluding another
  • Rule: Language:English -Publisher:Perseus
  • Manually Included Items: none
  • Manually Excluded Items: none
