If I was looking for an illustration on the topic of Servant-hood in my Library, how would Logos find a story in a book that is not directly tagged to be a book about Servant-hood?

Or would I need to read all my books and tag selections and stories according to their topic in order to find the topic that I am looking for?

Try the Sermon Starter guide, it will provide some help with items tagged with servanthood.

Also try a general search of all resources for SERVANTHOOD

You can also filter your library with tag:Servant* to find books that have been tagged with the subject SERVANTHOOD

I'm sure others can and will provide more efficient search methods, but maybe this will get you started.

Thanks Mike. I realize that I am probably asking too much but I am refferring to the many different tags that could be added to the myraaid of stories and illustrations scattered throughout my library and how I could find them when needed. 

I was reading a book in Logos and highlighted a story but couldn't find any way to tag that story.

You can also create Illustration Collection:

Illustrations

  • Rule: Subject:(illustrat,quot,stor),Title:(1001,illustrat,laugh,quot,stor)
  • Manually Included Items: none
  • Manually Excluded Items: none

See more examples: https://wiki.logos.com/Example_Collections

And search in this collection specifically for: Servant* or: Servant-hood OR Servanthood

Others have given you good tips for more immediately finding illustrations. But I would encourage you to do something like what you mention (tagging) as you read books. I personally highlight potential illustrations in orange. In the long-term, this will give you more of a personal database of illustrations that mean more to you.

For me I would like to kept it in My Favorites Folder so that I can find it when needed.

Levi, is it possible to Tag a Highlighted selection so that I would be able to find it better later?

Absolutely! All the highlights you make are accessible in the Notes Tool. Find your highlight and add a tag or even a note.

Thanks Levi

I have created an Illustrations Notebook and will be highlighting illustrations in Orange and then Tagging the illustration and putting them in the Illustrations Notebook going forward.
