In either the Command Box and/or the Library Tool if I type in CCSS (an abbreviation for the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture series), 3 of the 4 volumes I own in this series show up: Matthew, Mark and Acts. Philippians-Colossians-Philemon does not show up.

Again in the Command Box and/or the Library Tool I type in: Ignatius (I am looking for all books published by Ignatius Press), only The Ignatius Catholic Study Bible: The New Testament shows up. The two volumes in this series on Genesis and Exodus do not show up.

This behavior is the same in both the Verbum program and in the Verbum app for Android.

So is this a bug to report or am I just not understanding how searching/tagging works?

If this is a bug, I would like to ask Faithlife to please make all the resources within a series behave the same way when searching for all the resources within that series (or from a specific Publisher).

Or am I supposed to Tag all these books myself?

It's not so much a bug as missing metadata.

Most volumes of CCSs have the word CCSS in their short title. That's why they're found when you type CCS into the command box. The good news is that (a) you can report missing metadata here, and (b) you can edit the short title from the library in the meantime.

This is because the command box only searches the title, author and short title fields. It doesn't search the publisher fields. You need to go into the library to search for the publisher (use publisher:ignatius).

This is my personal Faithlife account. On 1 March 2022, I started working for Faithlife, and have a new 'official' user account. Posts on this account shouldn't be taken as official Faithlife views!

Also with the Ignatius Study Bible, the Ignatius Study Bible: New Testament lists "Ignatius Press" as the author, while the individual volumes for Genesis and Exodus list Scott Hahn and Curtis Mitch as the authors.
