1. Create an empty collection by following Tools ==> Library ==> Collections

2. Build a collection rule

  • type:manual will select most recent Logos documentation
  • title:glossary will select much of the documentation for resources - some exclusions will be necessary
  • author:"Proctor, Morris" will select any of the Morris Proctor materials

From manual:

From glossary after exclusions:

from Proctor, Morris:

3. Add the following resources:

  • Verbum 360 Training
  • Practicum: Learn to Use Verbum
  • All interactives with an About section - these will not have the documentation searched but having them in the collection helps you remember to look there

4. Add any additional resources you may have in your collection that you wish to view as "training" such as:

  • Understanding BHS: A Manual for the Users of Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia
  • All Roads Lead to the Text: Eight Methods of Inquiry into the Bible - A Template for Model Exegesis with Exegetical Examples Employing Logos Bible Software

This leave me with a collection of 49 resources:

5. So if I want to search for information on Community Tags, I search this collection:

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Thanks for sharing this MJ. I just added it as a collection. I just have to remember to add other resources to the collection as they become available.

Using adventure and community to challenge young people to continually say "yes" to God

MJ. Smith:
2. Build a collection rule

Type:(Manual,Glossary) OR Author:"Proctor,Morris"

Resource Type for many "Glossary" titles has changed from Encyclopedia to Glossary.
