Don Awalt:
What I suspect is some of the resource I do not own in the expansion collections are not out yet. WOuld there be an easy way to show in the report whether the resources are out yet or not?

I've looked at this again, and think I may have found an example in the Sermon Finder collection. The first resource may well not be out yet. But there's no way I can be certain about that - although the lack of a cover is certainly a hint in that direction!

Thank you Mark! Maybe this will inspire Faithlife to do something.

The icons I was talking about were the resource icons, which appear in the report to the left of the name:

I am pretty sure some of the resources in the Expansion pack are not yet out. I am a little concerned that I will pay the dynamic price for the package and not get anything new because the resources are not yet available. I am almost positive I checked this with customer service a little while ago. I don't know if you can flag that or not some how, but that is why I was asking. 

Understand on the resource count, I was looking at the wrong number. It says I have 22,187. Add 298 PBs, that makes 22,485. I have 22,361 resources. I guess there are some hidden datasets that are not part of what is showing in the library with the 29 that do show?

OK, it's online at www.mylogoslibrary.com.

Thanks Mark. It works like a charm. Quite cool to experiment with.

Hi Mark, I did the research and here is what I found:

Sermon Finder Collection - the tool reported I was missing 15 resource, 13 have not been released yet.

Systematic Theologies Collection - it reported I am missing 11 resources, none of which have been released yet

IMHO it's a bit deceitful on the Logos web site to imply these collections could be purchased on an attractive dynamic pricing price, yet what you pay for won't be out for awhile and they don't tell you, but that's a topic for another thread that I won't initiate  :-)

I think the cover images are missing in this case because the resources aren't yet out. I may be able to guess at this and indicate it on the site. If you click through on one of those resources, you should find that only a small amount of information is available, and the preview gives a 404 error. Those are very good signs that the resource isn't available yet.

<edit>I've added an asterisk in front of titles that I don't think have been released yet. I doubt it's foolproof, but it should be fairly accurate.</edit>

That's correct. I'm counting datasets as resources, which is what Logos' "New to Me" on base packages does.

Update: I've added a series page, so you can now browse by series. There's a sorting bug, but apart from that it should be helpful, I think.

Thanks Mark,

As usual your tools are of great benefit.  I think Logos should give you a percentage of purchases that folks add to their libraries as they discover from your tool the missing volumes.

Mark Barnes:

OK, it's online at www.mylogoslibrary.com. Consider it to be in beta, and I can't make any guarantees about accuracy. It should be self-explanatory, but if not, please ask.

In addition to showing you which resources you don't own, it's quite handy for two other features:

  1. You can browse resources by author/publisher and also by subject. So, you could see, for example, all the commentaries on 1 Peter (and find out which ones you don't yet own).
  2. You can also see if individual resources are compatible with older versions of Logos/Libronix.

Mark,

Your labor is appreciated! I have run into some problems. I'm not sure you will be able to address these issues, but here you go. I own the entire set of IVP Dictionary Series your program was able to identify that the Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels 2nd ed is new to me. What it didn't tell me is that I own the 1st ed printed 1992. Is there a way you could get the program to recognize the older edition in its report?

Secondly, I own NICOT/NT save one resource which I can ferret out with a little work, but your program makes me lazy and I would like it to identify which resource is new to me as it is your program does not recognize any of the volumes I already own. Is there a way to remedy this?

Thanks a ton

Very well done! Thanks! Works great. Looks great.

Love the detail information like Last Updated/update history (version of Logos required), etc. and the links to open in Logos or the website. The amount of info and presentation make me wish for a search. And/or if feasible, to add the first letter navigation that's on most of the tabs to the All Resources tab? I think I'm wandering a bit beyond your intended usage.

I love the way everything is interlinked. Pull up a resource, click on author to find books by that author, etc. Same with subjects, publishers, etc. Everything is linked--just like a library should be. I LOVE this! Why doesn't Logos do this yet?!?!

What is the "Num Copies" field on the Resources tab? If it's number of times that resource is counted amoung all uploaded libraries, I'm curious why it is 0 fairly often? Would love to sort on that field to see popular resources.

Love stats. Logos makes it bit hard to get meaningful stats because collections skew the results in almost all counts (using % read stat might get somewhat around that though that's not avail and much beyond the scope), but I like what you've provided here. Great stuff.

Thanks for your work on this. Excellent tool. Still exploring...

love this!

Excellent excellent tool.

One oddity is that it shows there are ~1200 issues of themelios when I am relatively certain there are only 108. Is there a bug going on there? or is it because of adjustments for typos and some people don't update? Or more likely I am misunderstanding the "copies" field.



Also, New to Me doesn't seem to work in Firefox.

All the counts are counts of resources across all uploaded libraries. 118 Themelios resources in my library + 118 in your library, etc. across all 11 uploaded libraries. One of the 11 users probably hasn't got the latest issue is likely the reason there aren't 11 x 118 = 1,298.

Yeah - that makes sense. I thought at first blush there was a relation between the top and bottom of the pages. But it seems there isn't. :) Thanks!

It doesn't work on the "New to me" tab, but you can sorta find it through the very useful Series tab: Series: New International Commentary on the Old and New Testament. The catch is that it is not equivalent to the collection as sold. It simply shows all resources that use that series name, including older, retired editions.

We actually have this feature in the works for a big promotion we're planning for September. The plan is to role this out initially across all collection product pages included in the sale.

I can't do anything about that, I'm sorry. As far as Logos is concerned they're two entirely different resources.

That shouldn't have happened. For some reason the product pages for the NICOT/NT haven't been recognised properly. I'll look into this.
