Mine is just over 8,000.   I assume this is about average but wanted to see the size of your library to compare.. 

    Thanks!

Greetings Rodney - you inspired me to do a quick calculation.

I reckon that my library would be about 235 meters long if it was in print.

I cant do that reverse calculation...  LOL..  How many books do you have if you dont mind me asking?   Maybe the size of ones library is a private matter?  If so forgive me for asking..

I took a 30 cm ruler and measured a random section of my print library. 13 books.

So the approximate size (largeness) of my library is ≈ ((30÷13)x10162)÷100 meters.

As you see the number of resources in my library is 10162 not including features and datasets etc.

9920 for me. But I would say that more is not necessarily better. More requires more... certainly more work to harness, utilize and tag effectively. You can easily miss the trees for the forest, even though no trees are physically harmed in the acquiring of our resources 😛.

I'm happy with my library of just over 17,000 and growing. I'm always looking for a deal.Geeked

I agree. I have a large library and any large-scale custom tagging becomes impossible. Searches have too many results, and you can easily get lost in your library. And finally, Logos slows down drastically.

Not impossible, but definitely it will take time. Each time I add more books to my library I take time to review them and tag them according. It is worth it to me to pause for a few moments to familiarize myself with my new resource and while doing so add appropriate tags. This discipline has continually proved valuable to me.

True, which is another good argument to mostly search using "mytag:___"

Wow! I got Logos about a month ago and I have 835 resources. I’m nowhere near some of the posters here lol. Not sure if I’ll get that high. Logos can still be very overwhelming to use but I enjoy learning how to use the software.

I am not on my laptop, but I know I have between 10,000 and 11,000, not counting what is coming over from WordSearch.

I also tag as I add new resources. Helps me find things easier.

Thanks, Carla

There are some substantial investments in libraries being shown here.

May I appeal to the owners to identify a worthy recipient in the event of the owner being called from this dimension.

Make sure one knows who one's library is to be bequeathed to and make sure that information is recorded in one's will.

Faithlife are very accommodating in this regard. I guess they (reverse) inherit customers this way.

My library lists 7,106 resources. Can't believe I got there so quickly.
