I'm sorry Mark, I don't understand your question. Can you rephrase it?

We can make various collections: baptist collection, catholic collections.  Can we make a Perseus collection? A Civil war collection?  A perseus latin collection etc?  If yes, how would one suggest it be done?  I know there is a collections wiki page.   But I just figured someone might have done it already.  Does that make sense?

Mark:
A Civil war collection?

I just typed in Perseus civil.  And then I removed the three that didn't belong into the minus these resources.  The Civil Wars (English), The Civil Wars (Greek), and Commentaries on the Civil War (English).  These came from the classics collection.  There may be a "cleaner" way to do it, but it worked for me.

I have all the Perseus offerings in one big collection then some sub collections I thought would be useful.

Perseus Collection:

publisher:perseus

Classics in Greek

Subject:"Classics--Greek--History"

Classics in Latin

Subject:"Classics--Latin--History"

Classics in English

Subject:"Classics--English--History"

Classics (the combination of the above):

(drag each of the above three collections to the "+ these resources" area

Civil War History

Subject:"Civil War"

Ancient Papyrii

Series:"Duke Data Bank"

Aristotle

Author:Aristotle

I have similar collections for other authors. The syntax is the same.

Commentaries on Ancient Literature

Title:Commentary AND Subject:Classics--English

Renaissance Collection

Subject:"Europe--History--to 1800"

The Richmond Daily Dispatch

Series:Richmond

When you say "sub collections" do you mean separate collections or actual sub collections? I didn't think there was a way to do sub collections. If there are such a thing as sub collections, how does one create this?

Thanks very much for this. I was just about to pose this question to the forums. The Perseus collections are so vast that you must be able to divide it up into browsable entities to get the most out of it.

I have not seen this before but Logos is doing a great job with these Perseus Collections: Big Smile

You can make a collection of each just by typing (or copying from your email) the full collection name in the "Start with" box. Geeked

Wonder if we can get Logos to do this for all future collections........  Confused

...I mean sub-collections of the larger Perseus collection. They are normal Logos collections.

Wiki => http://wiki.logos.com/Example_Collections now has 22 examples that include or exclude Perseus (see Title or Collection Size notes), including PerseusHistory – US Civil War, and History – Latin Classics, including several based on Mark Smith's examples (earlier in this thread) plus Mike Audbrey's => http://community.logos.com/forums/p/39030/291577.aspx#291577

I've noticed that all the Perseus titles have the name of the Logos sub-collection in their description text, so you can create collections of them in Logos by using rules like this:

"Perseus Classics"

"Perseus Civil War"

"Perseus Arabic"

"Perseus Renaissance"

Etc.

Hi Rosie, I noticed that when using this method you will pick up a few strays.  Note that when I used this method to create the civil war collection, I picked up three titles from the classics collection about a civil war in early history.  I mentioned this in a comment a few before yours in this thread.  Mark's method seems bullet proof.  (By the way I missed your input when you took some time off a while back.)

 

Edit: you were right I was wrong.  I failed to put them in quotation marks.

Yes, that is exactly how I made my "War of Northern Aggression" collection.  Wink

I don't seem to find this in my Perseus collection. How can I get it or are they rolling out some of these in stages?

Perseus pre-publication orders are being processed in stages (may take several days for all resources to download).

I made all those collections from the wiki example_collections that Keep Smiling posted. They seem very practical and will be easy to use when doing research. Thanks a ton my smiley friend!
