Hi kids! I would like to create a collection of bible study *materials*, e.g. MacArthur Bible Studies, but they're usually only listed as Monographs. If I do a search, it will also tend to include any book with text along the lines of  "this makes a great bible study..." which is not what I'm looking for - I'm looking for all my books which are specifically Bible Studies such as the MacArthur ones above, and with close to 7000 books at this point, a book-by-book check is NOT something I'm tempted to do, not even In The Time Of COVID! Cool

Any thoughts, words I can use, secret handshakes, or pigeon entrails I can consult? I'm only one coffee into my morning and still have no imagination, LOL!

I'd suggest this: 

Running Logos 9 latest (beta) version on Win 10

Carmen, does the collection rule   Subject:"bible-study and teaching"   get the sort of results you want?

you might try this rule to cast a little wider net

subject:"bible study and teaching" OR communitytag:biblestudy


(subject:"bible study and teaching" OR  communitytag:biblestudy) AND type:monograph

Library filter suggestion for a "Bible Study + Teaching" collection is: (likely has some false positives)

(Subject:(Bibl,Grace) AND Subject:(Patriarchs,Reading,Reference,"Second Advent",Stud,Teaching)) OR Subject:"Small groups" OR Series:"Bible Study" OR (Edition:eBook AND Title:"Bible Study")

Searching for Bible Study articles/chapters finds results in more resources than collection (so collection rule could be modified)

([field heading,largetext] Bible) WITHIN 3 WORDS study

To expand on this: If you have a passage you are looking for Bible studies on (ie sets of questions), you can look up the passage in this document (either as a DOCX document or putting it into Logos as a personal book), and towards the end of the list of books listed for that passage, you will find the books that are Bible studies for that passage. Of course, you might not own all the Bible studies listed, and you might own some Bible studies that are not in the list, but it will be a start. There is a problem that there might be a Bible study on 8 chapters, for example, so if you look for a Bible study on a chapter towards the end of those eight, the Bible study would not be easy to find.
