Is there a way to limit collections to certain publication years or later?

So I'd like to form a collection of my Greek grammars consisting only of those published within the last say 50 years.  Currently, when I start a new collection and enter "Greek grammar" over 70 resources show up; plenty of them from the very early 1900's or even 1800's.  

Is there a keyword I can enter to limit the publication year?

Thanks!

Try "pubdate:>1972".

Shalom gam lekha HJ!

Thanks for the tip, I tried this and it's interesting it does reduce the number of results but still gives me things from 1911 and the 1800's (according to title pages).

I wonder if Logos has some hidden value for publication date where it's interpreted as "the year in which a book was 'published' in Logos"?

So even if it was public domain from the 1800's could it still be registering as after 1972 in Logos time? This would only make sense if it's inconsistent though.

You will have to remove these manually from the collection.

Yes. E.g. A.T. Robertson wrote his grammar in 1914 but its publication date in Logos is 2006. You can check this in the library pane.

Agreed - and I think this is an error in the resource coding. There is a separate Library field for Electronic Publication Date and I think in this case (and probably several others) both have been entered as the same date incorrectly.
