So, a while back I got so excited to fill up my library. I ran across the Perseus collection in Greek & English. It gave me tons of extra resources.

Unfortunately, I NEVER use any of these and they are crowding my library. It's ridiculous how cluttered they make things.

Is there an EASY way to get rid of (I'm not opposed to deleting the purchase if it's possible) these books?
I prefer an option that does not include me manually removing each of the hundreds and hundreds of books one at a time.

Thanks in advance!

I did the same years ago when they first appeared in Logos, and I was exactly the same - I didn't use them and they seriously slowed down my machine.

I think I contacted Customer Service and asked them to remove the purchase, which they were happy to do. Much easier than manually removing them!

The simplest route is to call Customer Service and Richard said and ask them to remove your license for them. After they've done that, to get them out of your Library you may need to type "Delete Unlicensed Resources" in the Go bar and give it some time to work.

Personally what I have done (since I want to keep them but not always see them) is tag all of these resources (I used PER, but you can use anything you like). You can do this easily by typing publisher:Perseus in your Library find box, selecting all, then clicking on the i with the circle and typing PER, or whatever you chose, in the Add tag box.

After you've done this, go back to the Library find box and type rating:>=0 ANDNOT mytag:PER in the find box. This will now list every title not tagged PER.

Select them all and tag them something like NPER. Don't use a tag that is a word or a part of a word. NPER works for this.

Once done you can filter your Library using the Faceted Browsing in L8 by clicking on the NPER tag. (If you are in L7, simply type NPER in your Library find box to get the same result.)

This would allow you to keep these resources for a time you might like to consult them but help bring clarity to your Library.
