This collection needs to be broken up ASAP:

I only need the book: Christians at the Border.  I’m collecting resources to do a deep study on immigration.

Ben Amundgaard (Faithlife):

Hi all,

We have some exciting news!

In response to customer feedback, we’ve been working on a new tool that will allow us to automatically split resource collections, replacing a manual process that used to take many hours with an automatic process that takes a few minutes.

This means that over the next few weeks, thousands of resources will be available for individual purchase on logos.com and verbum.com.

Our goal is to have almost every live collection in our catalog broken up and available for sale by the end of July.

Two things to note:

1. For various backend reasons, there will often be a delay between when you see a title appear as a standalone product and when it is actually available for sale (usually less than 24 hours).

2. From time to time you may notice a few errors or missing data on some product pages. Because this is an automated process, when there are empty fields and/or mistakes in the metadata (and there are bound to be some) this is carried over to the live product page on the website. Please bear with us! We will continue to work to make sure that enough information is on the page. If you see an egregious factual error, please let us know. All other issues (e.g. missing author bio) are likely already known and will be addressed in time.

We are very excited about this and we hope you are too.

P.S. Keep an eye out, we have a number of exciting promotions planned for these individual resources.

This is a great initiative. Will you also start to make pre-pub available separately as well as in collections?  Here's an example listed this weekend where some may wish to only purchase selected volumes.

Great idea 💡 but it’s clogging the website.  You have all these old and new mixed single volumes that make it hard to find some other recent books that just came out of prepub.  If you don’t know the name you have to peruse through all these “new titles.” 😑

Will the public domain resources that have just been broken up be available as the monthly free classic book on faithlife connect? If not is there any way to request this for a particular book?

Can you please also break these out? For some reason they weren't included the Verbum Gold package even though they're in English and not Latin. It looks like Verbum Platinum mostly adds the Latin versions of the Apostolic Constitutions and Exhortations collection, except for these which are in English.

This is a great point (though, in my mind, the problem is somewhat inevitable).

This does bring up a question: how do you typically browse our site when you don't know exactly what title you're looking for? Do you scroll through the titles? Do you search by author or topic? I'm curious to know so that as we begin to split these collections out, we can be thinking about how best to organize them.

When there is a book that interests me, I write the title down somewhere or put it into the wish list for later.  Now that the collections are split up, I will get out my list and do a search to see if I can locate a book that was in a collection that I was waiting to purchase

If I have a specific book in mind, I'll search for the author or keywords from the title. I also filter by faith group quite frequently. Price, Savings, and New are the main sorting options I choose.

I rarely ever search if I don't know what I'm looking for.

When I know what I'm looking for but don't get results with a title, my backup search is on the author. I don't find topic searches very useful, but occasionally I try them.

I would suggest that the original collection name be included in the keywords so we can find things that have been bundled for years and are just now split up.

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Faithlife Corp. owes the MVPs free resources for life.

From time to time I like to see what has been released recently. Breaking up a collection just clogs it up for me.

Suggestion - create a separate category called recently broken up collections. then everyone will know how to fine the most recently broken out titles.

Best,

I usually browse through the shop new products but even then it gets clogged with the new pre-pubs that are gathering interest and the Chinese/Korean/German/Portuguese new prepubs and live products.  I think those should have their own space like the Spanish products do.  I also browse by key words, authors and title. 

So, finding a way to sort out all these individual titles is going to be a pain for you guys at FL.  Maybe, like someone suggested, create a category for the recently broken up collections.

Back when L5 and part of L6 website was up, there was a category titled “New Products” and it didn’t include new prepubs. Prepubs stayed in the prepub page they, somehow, didn’t mix with the new products like they do now; they only mixed when they made it out of prepub the day they went live. Anyway, I’m sure something will be figured out to solve this issue.  Thanks to you and everyone at FL for your hard work!

Blessings!

We're now into August - is there any reason why the public domain PT Forsyth collection hasn't been broken up yet?

Ben Amundgaard (Faithlife):

P.S. Keep an eye out, we have a number of exciting promotions planned for these individual resources.

Any update on these promotions? Haven't seen any so far.

Hi Stephen,

See my comment here https://community.logos.com/forums/p/133838/989812.aspx#989812

A majority of titles should now be split out. There may be a few lingering titles that need a bit of manual work.

They are still planned. I'm not sure exactly when they'll launch.

Still not broken up as far as I can see!

Hi Ben,

Is there a way to hide the commentaries or books we already own to allow us browse what we don't have?

Thank you!

Pedro
