The "No Library" part seems up self explanatory meaining we won't get any of the books associated with  Essentials.

But if you check out this comparison https://connect.faithlife.com/now-connect-compare Now features and Essentials you will see that the two plans march in lockstep down the page feature for feature. And i see what appears to be lots of books in the Now column. So what does "No Library" really mean?

Good question..  I think we need a 4th column on that chart now.

Your link shows a comparison of features. Features are not the same as books (i.e. a library). The "No Library" part means you won't get the 144 books outlined in the screenshot below. Everything else about the Essentials plan remains the same:

So all the Reverse Interlinears are features and not books?

The distinction between features and books seems kind of blurry to me.

Don't get me wrong. I'm happy with this and it looks to me like I won't be losing anything I now have access to. I'm just trying to understand.

They are associated with Bibles but don't appear in the Library in their own right.

The "Resource Information" page (click the "i" at the top right to get this) for the NIV - for example - speaks about reverse interlinears and specifies their filenames / versions etc

They are not purchased as books but made available as part of feature sets.

 Having been subscribed to LN, I see under my Subscriptions Faithlife Connect Starter - Annual. I thought having had LN, I would be automatically subscribed to Essentials and not Starter. What am I misunderstanding?

You've not been switched over yet (just like me).

The email I received stated that, "We’ll be migrating Logos Now customers to this new level throughout this week and will send you an email once the change is complete." (emphasis mine)

I was switched over already and noted that if you turned off auto-renew for Connect Starter, that carries over to Connect Essentials (No Library). Be sure to switch it back to "auto renew" so you don't lose the renewal discount.

I was switched over to Connect Starter also. Not sure why some people got starter and some got Essentials. I also don't know the criteria for why some got $100 and some got $200 coupons.

I just checked about 5 minutes ago and I ma now on Connect Essentials (No Library) but I haven't received the email informing me of that yet. I went ahead and turned on auto renew for my subscription.

Its actually listed as Faithlife Connect Essentials - No library (formerly Logos Now) - Annual and I show my Starter subscription as Expired.

That depended upon how long one had been a Logos Now member

The entire mechanism of determining the value of the coupon is shrouded in mystery. https://community.logos.com/forums/p/160787/959653.aspx#959653

Joshua, Erik & Marshall. I just went over to Subscriptions and noticed they had made a change there. It was still up to me to Renew Faithlife Connect Essentials (with Faithlife Connect Starter as an option also) so I simply clicked the Renew Essentials and I'm in again. As Staples would say, "That was easy."

Why did you want to keep essentials with the library just curious? They have a no library option which is the same but a $100 cheaper just without the books

When this all started Keith, I unsubscribed from LN and used the Coupon to buy Logos 7 Full Feature Set.

Then when the tide turned, I figured I'd switch back to Faithlife Connect Essentials. If I find out before next November that I'm not in need of it, I can simply back out.

I have an idea that when Logos 8 come tearing down the pipes, I'll buy that also.

12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

1 Corinthians 13:12

I'm just extremely thankful for how all this worked out, even if there are parts I don't full understand.
