As Alan said, overusing "Series" may slow down your system.

We're going to push a small fix in 6.3 Beta 3 that should address part of this performance problem (and make it much less of an issue to use "Series" metadata to indicate "book series").

If you use Series heavily for "serial resource associations", please give this a test when Beta 3 ships.

Fr Devin Roza:
From the end-users perspective, it is very nice to have the Series like the 101 questions series you mentioned marked as such in the Metadata that ships with the product. This makes exploring your Library much easier and faster. That is too bad about it opening up all of them together. I wonder how that could be fixed, so we could have the best of both worlds

6.3 Beta 3 will contain a small fix to stop all the "101 Questions" resources being opened when you open one of them.

This is a standard engineers vs UI "argument" that happens all the time in software development. Logos 3 had separate series fields, and most users found them confusing. Having one field with a simple rule has worked well since Logos 4 was introduced, so I'm on the side of the UI guys. It shouldn't matter that the metadata people are using the series field for publisher series (like the Anchor Bible Reference library). most of the time that's useful (like commentary series, for example). If the code needs to be optimised (e.g. Only opening resources that shares a data type with the current resource), then I'm sure the engineers can rise to the challenge.

Will do - thank you.

I see it more as a data design issue ... trying to attach two separate meanings to a single piece of data because they match some/most of the time.

This is in 6.3 Beta 3.
