Try something like this:

rating:>=0 ANDNOT type:monograph

Thanks Allen Browne

Yes that works.

Now my next question: How do you exclude Monographs and all Non English text resources?

FYI, you can just use "*" to select all resources. And "-" (without a space after it) is a shortcut for ANDNOT.

* -type:monograph

There's a space between en and but no space between - and type.

it does. the en belongs to the first part of the filter/selection lang:en (no space between the colon and the en) which gives you all English resources in the library.

the -type:.... is an abbreviation for ANDNOT type:....  and is the second part of the filter/selection, narrowing the results down by taking out those of a specific type, here monograph. The minus sign must precede the type:... immediately, no space in between, otherwise Logos treats the minus as a separate part and the type:... as a third part (all of them separated/connected by spaces, which work as AND) with the result of showing only monographs.

...use "*" to select all resources

Thanks, Bradley. The wildcard is probably quicker to execute as well as to type.

It used to be a lot slower, which is why people came up with "rating:>=0" and other "tricks" to select all resources. That performance problem has been fixed for several years now, I think.

Thanks for that bit of information. * appear to be instantaneous now (at least in the library panel).
