Bradley Grainger (Faithlife):

Which volumes are missing?

A good portion of the Bibliotheca Sacra volumes are missing.  Maybe just a few others at quick glance.  But the Bibliotheca Sacra gap really sticks out.

Bradley Grainger (Faithlife):

Is it possible your WS/BW account was under a different email account, eu[...]6@googlemail.com? (redacted)

If so, your WS account isn't linked with your Logos account yet and needs to be merged in.

Hi Bradley, yes, that is correct. I've now sent an email to cs@logos.com in order to get the old WS account merged into my primary FL account. So that will probably sort things.

Thanks

Not all Wordsearch resources are available in Logos right away; some are still being converted.

See the FAQ for more: https://www.logos.com/wordsearch-faq#mybooks 

Wordsearch use to sell the New Oxford Annotated Bible 3rd Augmented edition. Will this volume eventually make it to my Logos even though WS was no longer sells it?

JRS:

I don't remember the small company they were purchased from, but I do know they no longer exist.  Most titles appear to be public domain.  A few, like The Potter's Freedom and Boice' works, are still protected by copyright.  I know there is some overlap with Logos resources.

Note that I possess the actual files for these resources which I always had to manually install any time WS was (re)installed or upgraded.

It would be fantastic if Logos could convert these over for me (at least the public domain titles).

I am in the same situation. Years ago there was a company called Doxa Digital Press which sold lots of titles compatible with WS. Whenever I've changed computers, I've had to manually install their files when re-installing WS. There were a few other physical disks I had purchased from other places and also had to install those separately. One of those was the Complete Biblical Library. By and large, these resources are not showing up in my "Products Owned" pages on the WS website and thus are not transferring over to Logos. There is actually quite a lot of discrepancy between what I have unlocked in my WS library and what is displayed on the Products Owned page. This morning I emailed WS about this, and I hope they can provide a good solution to this issue.

JRS:

Phil/Bradley,

FL/Logos acquiring WS is very good news!  And, I appreciate the list of titles that are going to be transitioned over to Logos. However, I have several titles that were produced for the WS application but not by LW/WS nor sold by them.  Quickly comparing my WS library list with your list of transitioning titles, I have already spotted some that are not on the transitioning list.

Is there a similar, official list of titles that will NOT be transitioning over?

I was very disappointed to not see the Interpreter's Bible on the list.

I see it at https://www.logos.com/wordsearch-library-migration when I type "Interpreter" into the Search box at the top of the page.

If they don't show up as Owned Resources in your account on the Wordsearch website, then unfortunately they're not part of the licenses we acquired and we can't import them.

Apologies I didn't look under T for the and I do see the NOAB when i search.

All my questions are answered, now to get my licences  to my LOGOS account (my WS account email was same one as I used for a test demonstration account i made to demonstrate the power of Logos before you even spent a penny)....

If on the WS end they are able to update my list of products owned, would the updated list be able to be imported into Logos? Or is the import a one-time, already done thing?

In 2016 B&H had an offer for the Wordsearch edition Spurgeon's Sermons from the Metropolitan Tabernacle for free. Does anyone know if those are being transferred?

Yep. You win the coconut!  Doxa was, indeed, the company I bought from.  They had a nice catalog/ministry while it lasted.

Oh well, such is life.

I'll hang on to the Doxa files at least until WS no longer works.  Maybe a miracle will happen and the Owner of what was Doxa Digital will see this thread and release all of his titles/licenses to Logos ... Oh, look - a flying pig!  Wink

We're discussing if and how we can handle Doxa licenses. I don't have an answer at this point, and I don't know if WS would be able to update their systems to include these non-Wordsearch licenses.

Bradley, did you look into those missing journal volumes?

The Wordsearch resource titled Spurgeon's Collected Sermons (Met. Tabern. Pul.) should be imported to Logos.

Will all the Wordsearch resources that will be migrated to Logos have page numbers in the Logos editions?

Phil, I have noticed a few of WS links go to different Logos resources. (e.g. https://wordsearchbible.lifeway.com/products/21347-holiness) and other issues (e.g. owned WS book shows owned on one Pre-Pub but not for a different Pre-Pub.) And that some licensed works do not show available or 'Coming Soon'. 

How/to whom do we report the discrepancies?

Thanks for pointing them out. Please send them to weberrors@faithlife.com (the more issues you can report in one single email the better).

Thank you so much ... couldn't ask for more. Looking forward to the answer and hoping for the best.

I just want to point out that we used a "fuzzy match" when linking the product pages together, as we felt it wasn't a big deal if the link went to the wrong Logos product.

We were much more conservative with linking the licenses for imported accounts, since that's much more critical to get right. This is why you may see reports of missing licenses; they haven't been linked up yet.

So don't worry if you see erroneous links from the Wordsearch Store to Logos; that won't affect the quality of the migration of your library to Logos. But please still report them when you see them so we can get them fixed.
