I've done some more research and, once again, I think there is some additional confusion and embarrassment on my part.  Please refer to my first post here

I think this was brought about by my logging on to the Verbum website and clicking on the "Featured Catholic Resources."  I noticed that none of the resources on the website were "grayed out", in other words, I didn't own any of them.  Interested in the topic, it led me to believe that I wanted to purchase them.

…  the user (me) disconnect - I use Verbum mostly to read the daily readings, write homilies while researching church fathers, saints, etc,, and look up topics of interest.  In other words, although I own many monographs it is a slow process of reading.

Here is the punch line … I actually own volume 1 and 2 (see below) of the subject resource.  I'm thinkinh they were part of a library where I was focusing on some other resources and missed there.  Wow!  But the website did not show any of this.  Oh my!  Now I'm questioning the Verbum website.  Yikes!

Craig!  What's going on?

Hi Steve!

We use a few different 'Add to Cart' buttons on the website, and some of them aren't 'grayed out', even when you own something. The good news is that if you attempt to add a resource to cart that you already own, our system does not allow you to purchase something twice.

Enjoy the books!

See:

Volume 3 is under development. 

Per your comment "although I own many monographs it is a slow process of reading."  Many of us are in the same boat. More resources than we can read in this lifetime.  But they come in handy in searches.

Not trying to be sarcastic Donald, but we all figured that a year or so ago.  Doesn’t seem like a reasonable design let alone optimal.  It is a frustrating user experience to try and pick through things.

I guess we are all hoping one day that the response to one one these website inconsistency posts would be more along the line of, we have it scheduled to be fixed in the next xxx months... or something like that.

Oh well.  Continuing to appreciate the work the team is doing.

:)
