If you go to your account, you can see your total orders. Obviously, reselling them would bring in a lower value than this, but it gives you a starting point.

Sign in to your Logos account and look at the bottom of your "Order History". There you should find a grand total

Keep in mind that those who have used Logos for many years will not have a complete order history. For instance I've been using Logos since the 90s when it was sold on floppy disks but my order history only goes back to 2008.

suspect a thing is only worth what someone else is willing to pay for it.

Like most things as soon as you take them off the shelf and unwrap it the value decreases. Few people are willing to pay full price, they want a discount for 'helping you out'.

Since Logos resources can only be sold once, there is also a legitimately lower value to second-hand resources.

It's an interesting principle. Digital is exactly as new. Maybe a retiring pastor: he still takes a major hit from another Christian. 'No resell' is apparently not that significant.

The opposite occurs if a collection is no longer available. But that's few and far between.

if you have NIV84 and some discontinued titles (remember when Moody Press was unavailable?) and if you refuse to break-up your bundle, you may be able to ask a higher value.

Generally speaking. Find the package level that describes your library the most. Get average price per book and multiply by the size of your library. That would be your value. 

Ps: library size not counting all pbb's, books that always free, and Vyrso books

Once you have determined how much you have paid for your collection then you must multiply by about 0.7 to gain an understanding of its worth. I have occasionally bought "used" Logos resources on a FaceBook page set up for that purpose and generally paid about 70% of current Logos prices.

Thank you. That was quick and easy. Logged into my account and looking at order history, showing all, and I got my total expenditure. I didn't realize I have spent so much.

Yes, it can be quite shocking! And, if you made purchases before this current system started, the real number could be a lot higher. This is the case for me.

It is the case for me also. I began purchasing Logos books in the early 1990's.

I kind of wish I knew the full retail value of my library.  Then what I spent wouldn't be so alarming.

It would be intriguing to know but how would you ever determine that as value fluctuates through the years? In addition, how would you value sets or would you just want the retail value of each resource separately?

But I'm guessing you were not serious about your "wish".

In dead tree format, a library is worth 25-33% of its listed price (as printed on the cover) when you sell on the used market. I'm not sure electronic books will do as well given that it is only licenses that you are selling under most circumstances.
