I have Logos 9 Basic. However if I buy Logos 9 Basic Feature Upgrade, what have I to do? If I browse all books on logos.com it says that it is not owned by me. Even though I am logged-in. What should i do?
It now says: "You have temporary access to this product." How can I get it permanent?

Logos basic provides you a “free to use,“ temporary license to some resources. If you want a permanent license, you need to purchase a package or the resource itself.

Welcome to the forums, B!

Some more context may be helpful. As I understand it, the "temporary access" may be for a very very long time, basically doing it like this allows FL to give you these resources for free but probably not paying full or maybe zero royalties to the publisher. It enables FL to possibly reconfigure the Basic package in the future (e.g. should publishers retract the books from this kind of contract), my understanding is they don't plan doing this currently, so "temporary" may be for the foreseeable future. This may nevertheless change fast, though.

You must buy the ebooks and features to own them.

Be careful about the terminology being used here Kathleen.

Most Logos resources (I always refer to them as either resources or libraries) are much more than ebooks because of their additional tagging.

Logos does sell some ebooks but these are only minimally tagged (usually automatically) and are much less useful than Logos' main resources.

You are correct, but I was trying to use the terminology that I thought would be the most helpful to the OP right now. When a lot of us first start, the unfamiliar terminology is misunderstood more than familiar terminology. Understanding what is books and what is not books and the different options to buy them is one of the critical first steps.
