Is there a way in Logos to view collections of books? For example, if I buy a commentary series or a base package, how do I view only those books that make up that particular collection or package?

Hello Jeffrey 

I think there many different ways that you can view books from your collections or package.

The first is to make up collections using your collection under the tools tab.

Look at this post about tagging your resources http://community.logos.com/forums/t/54491.aspx  it was very useful. 

One think that i also do is the Favorites to group books into collection so i can access them on my tablet for reading.

I know others users may do other things but this is the system is use.

I want to echo Lee. Tagging your books is hugely helpful.  As are collections.

His link about tagging is quite helpful.

Here is some more information about collections.

Here are some more example collections.

Jeffrey Willis:
how do I view only those books that make up that particular collection or package?

In Library:

  • sort by Last Updated column (if not present right click any column to see a list)
  • ensure that Series, My Tags and Rating are visible

The books with the same Last Updated are your latest Collection, package or updated book. The idea is to manually tag (My Tags) or rate (Rating) the books so they can be put into a collection (Tools >> Collections). From there you can view Library by that collection name rather than "Entire Library".

A purchased package or collection may have books that belong to one or more Series, so you can use series:(name1, name2, ...) as a collection rule. My Tags rules are mytag:name and Rating rules are myrating:1to5. A rule for your latest package could be:

mytag:Gold

where you previously selected every book with the same Last Updated, pressed Information or "I", and input the tag Gold.
