Is there any way to search every resource in your library EXCEPT one resource?

For example: I want to search for everything I have on William Teelinck, but I do not want his book, The Path of True Godliness to be a resource that is searched. Way too many hits and makes the search page(s) too long to go through.

Is there a way to do this?

Create a collection and explicitly exclude that resource from it https://wiki.logos.com/Collections#Removing_an_individual_resource_from_the_collection

You can always sort the results by resource and simply ignore the one resource.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Alternatively: Simply sort by "resource" instead of "ranked":

Yep I think sorting is the best way. Thanks.

One other option that is a spin off of Graham's solution is to create a quick collection. I have included an example in the image below that excludes the title Every Waking Hour from the search. Notice that I am now searching one less resource due to this exclusion. Hope this helps.

resources I don't want included in searches I tag nosearch and then exclude  resources with this tag when the I'm doing broad searches of my library.
