While attempting to answer an LHBOTS question, I assumed I could simply filter by the series to view library information about all of the monographs.

Only four of the monographs show up under that series. Other monographs don't seem to have any series, although their citations mention the (formerly known as) Journal for the Study of Old Testament Series.

This is one of those teeny issues where it should only take a few seconds in Logos, but ends up taking 15 minutes to lookup specific monographs by hand.

Is this an inadvertent oversight, or is there a simple reason why no series is provided?

Thank you!

I imagine it's because it's a "library" not a series...

Interesting. Thanks, Reuben. I can appreciate the dilemma of not being able to have the same resource in different series.

Still puzzled why four of its resources would be considered an LHBOTS series. I suppose that information comes from the publisher, and FL just follows their lead.

Incidentally, the product page happens to describe it as a series:

  • "this unrivalled series expounds the Old Testament"
  • "the LHBOTS/JSOTS series has been one of the most respected sources for Old Testament scholarship"
  • "add this essential series to your Logos library today"
  • "Logos features the largest collection of this series available for purchase"

If it's not actually a series, perhaps the description needs a trivial update?
