I have found some instances in the Catholic Encyclopedia where references to Calvin‘s Institutes were not hyperlinked to the resource.

Also, it appears that some of the internal links seem limited to where the catholic encyclopedia says SEE a topic. Words like transubstantiation which are dealt with at length in the encyclopedia do not have internal hyperlinks in the article on consubstantiation, for example, where it is mentioned.

Hi and Merry Christmas Eric:

You probably didn't know when you purchased it:  this is a 'Logos Reader' edition (I didn't know that when I purchased it and was alerted to that in another thread). The Product Details section of the product page doesn't indicate this. In my case, I'm judging it to still be a good value being quite inexpensive in a lower-tier Verbum package, as I'm unlikely to need a lot of in-depth Catholic research. At least it has the 'See....' jump-words tagged, as you have noted. The PB I had previously used only had Headwords tagged, and this one will likely be formatted better and have a better presentation of images. (I haven't checked to see if images are tagged, although I suspect they are not.)

A More Serious Concern:  I have now noticed something significantly more troubling:  It appears that the 16th volume, a supplement, is missing. I have checked for a couple of early 16th Volume articles found in my .docx, e.g., 'Ancient See of Aarhus' and 'Archpriest Controversy', and they don't appear to be in the Logos Reader resource. I have vision impairments, so maybe someone else can validate. The CCEL PDF for that volume is linked here.

I’m less than happy to learn this is a readers edition. When I pre-ordered, when I purchased Verbum 9, I was expecting a full version. I hope this is upgraded in the future.

It does seem surprising, after having been in pre-pub for so many years (before Logos Reader Editions even existed), to not have delivered this as a Logos Research Edition.

Thanks to FL for including Carta and a Hebrew audio bible in Logos 9!

Is there a way to notify Logos to have them add Vol. 16? Maybe it was an oversight.

I know it’s free online, like the Jewish Encyclopedia, but even without full tags and hyperlinks it seemed worth $30 to me to have it in Logos to interface with other Resources when searching a subject.

What additional features would a Research Edition have?

Logos Research Editions get the full Logos treatment. We catalogue topics discussed, Scripture references, theological concepts, bibliographic info, citations, and so much more. Then we connect them to Logos tools so you can access essential info in seconds flat.

Logos Reader Editions are designed to be read cover to cover. We tag Scripture references and some other basics, but forgo the robust treatment given to reference works. This drastically speeds up production, enabling us to release them the same day as print!

While I'm happy to own this Encyclopedia, it's in the wrong tagging category. Encyclopedias are for research and not intended for reading cover to cover.

I noticed a couple things. The Jewish Encyclopedia seems to also be a Reader’s edition, only highlighting the fact that it links Scripture references.

The Logos description says the Catholic Encyclopedia is 16 volumes. We need to tell Logos to include Vol 16.

Are the Vol 16 articles scattered among the 15 volumes?

My quick-check indicates 'no' and I doubt Faithlife would, or be allowed to, restructure the publication in that way. Maybe they didn't obtain rights for the supplement and the persons composing the product page didn't know that.

It's public domain, though they clearly used the version from newadvent.org.

We need to demand it loudly ... I suspect they thought it was an index rather than glossary/reading list.

It's public domain

In that case, here's Volume 16. Compile as Type: Encyclopedia and set the compiled resource in a Series with the Logos Reader resource and the supplementary articles will display when entered in the reference box of either resource. And let's hope they make this into a Logos Research edition.

2870.Catholic Encyclopedia - Vol 16..docx

BTW, the title of the actual resource does have "I - XV"; it's the product page that has "16 volumes)".

Volume 16 is labeled a supplement.

How come it doesn’t say in the website that it is a Reader’s Edition? Another “oversight” maybe? It needs to be listed which edition it is for ALL resources since they now had the bright idea to have a “reader’s edition” and a “research edition.”
