Eric Weiss:

The Logos description says it’s 16 volumes, which includes volume 16 with a lot of supplementary articles. However, what Logos just rolled out to us is only volumes 1 through 15.

How do we get volume 16 included in our Catholic encyclopedia?

The 16th volume is an index of the first 15 volumes. That index is contained in the table of contents feature. There were no additional entries in the 16th volume. I apologize for the confusion.

I'm not really sure - in another thread the 16th volume was shared even as a PB source: https://community.logos.com/forums/p/197592/1145150.aspx#1145150

I'll have to look further into this. There was a decision to forgo adding one of the supplemental volumes in order to get the main volumes shipped more quickly, but I thought that was a 17th volume. Perhaps I'm off by a number.

To be honest this is worrying, hopefully this will be rectified after your investigation.

Volume 16 provides articles and an index. Neither the articles--the first of which is "Aarhus, Ancient See of"--nor the index exist in my Verbum library.

Then there was then a 1918 supplement--a short one--that addressed changes in canon law.

Finally there was a 1922 supplement, which is Volume 17.

Interestingly, the New Advent site, which Verbum's Catholic Encyclopedia resource is clearly derived from, does include the articles from Volume 16.

We will be producing the articles from Volume 16. Their omission was an oversight.

It's a little odd to see it in my library as a Logos Reader Edition; given that there is no such indication of that on its product page and that it is an encyclopedia, of all things, I would like to assume that it will soon be a Logos Research Edition.

The Catholic Encyclopedia is closer to a Research Edition than a Reader Edition, however, it does lack some tagging that a full research edition would have. It is fully integrated with Factbook, and packs more punch than a typical Reader Edition.

If you find that it is missing some desired functionality, let us know and we'll see if we can rectify it.

Will do.

If there was actually a public list of the differences between Research Editions and Reader Editions, I think there would be less confusion about why the Catholic Encyclopedia isn't a Research Edition.

It seems to be missing Date tagging.

I don't know how important that is in general to other people; the very specific task I was going to do until I ran the Concordance and got no hits for Date references is impossible without it, but I can live that, and I don't see myself using Date tagging for some other purpose.
