Is it possible to view a contributor's name in a resource that has multiple contributors without having to look inside the resource? For example, can I know that R. T. France was the contributor to Hebrews in the Expositor’s Bible Commentary (Revised Edition) without looking inside the resource?

The only way I know how to find the authors of a book without opening the resource is to hover your mouse over "author" in the library view and it will list all of the authors.

Of course you could also search for an author if you were looking for a particular one.

I don't quite understand the point of the question, which might have bearing on the answer you are looking for. On face value, I think the answer is "no." 

If you are asking about citations, for example, than certain styles will include the correct information when creating footnotes. When I copied a quote from an article in Berkley's Leadership Handbook, this is what I get: 

Footnote

 William H. Willimon, “Crisis and Conflict,” in Leadership Handbook of Management and Administration, ed. James D. Berkley, Revised and Expanded Edtion. (Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Books, 2007), 216.

Bibliographic Citation

Berkley, James D., ed. Leadership Handbook of Management and Administration. Revised and Expanded Edtion. Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Books, 2007.

Either I don't understand this suggestion, or it doesn't work for the resource I just gave (or there is a bug).

Basically, I would like to know who contributed to which book in a commentary series without having to open the resource. Using the Expositor’s Bible Commentary (Revised Edition) as an example, can Logos tell me that France did Hebrews, Guthrie did James, Johnson did Revelation, etc., without opening the resource?

I suppose I can simply change the book’s title to “Hebrews (France); James (Guthrie); 1, 2 Peter, Jude (Charles)” etc., if there is no other way.

This would be a workaround as it's not possible any other way to tell without opening the resource.

You can do it indirectly via Commentaries in Passage Guide. You would have to enter a single bible book name for volumes with multiple books.

I hadn't thought of that approach, that's for the insight Dave.
