How do I add a search result that is outside a Collection to a Collection?

for instance. When I do a search for "st. Bernard of" [w/o quotes] I get many results. How would I add one of these results to my St. Bernard Collection? 

I know that's a ruff question, but just wanted to know.

Alternatively, if you searched in a library tab and have the collection open in another tab, just drag the book over to the Plus field and drop it there

No I get that. But there are numerous articles/reviews etc., that high light Bernard of Clairvaux within a resource. What I'm asking is how do I add or can I add a particular article within a resource to a Collection.

Instead of adding a resource then trying to find an article about Bernard how do I add the EXACT article about him w/o scrolling to it.

For example in the book The Annotated Luther, Volume 6: The Interpretation of Scripture  on page 438 Bernard is highlighted with his views on John 1:14A. https://ref.ly/logosres/nnttdlthr06?ref=Page.p+438&off=155

Is there a way to add this specific point of reference to a collection OR just the overall book/resource?

Collection is a group (set) of resources.

An article, not the book? The only way I know is copy/paste the article in a Word doc > PPB. Then put the PPB the collection. If you did this regularly, you'd keep a series of Word docs per author. Which would work well, even with google results.

But not a drag/drop solution.

I have in the past done something like this with a Note file. You could create a note file for each person you want to keep records for, then paste the link into the note file and give it a title, or (this is what I did) write out a short description, then turn that description into a link.

I make bibliographies when I want things at the article level.

One idea is saving Search that found Article in a Favorites folder. Like using ([field heading,largetext] ...) for article searching (syntax can also be used in Web Apps)
