Tes,

Logos4 already has your Library arranged by type (for the most part)

  1. Just click the Type column heading, Logos shows you all the types
     (see wiki articles: Available Columns in the detailed view, Rearranging Columns in the detailed view, & Using a Column heading to filter your resource list)
  2. Notice the Types, if you click on one of these types Logos4 will expand to show you your books that match that type.
  3. The type Monograph is a very large Type (contains many books) and is a general Type
    You could tag books of this type according to how you would categorize them (see wiki article about tagging: Tagging )

Also someone just a few days ago had a post about organizing their library: http://community.logos.com/forums/t/28105.aspx Mark gave some good tips on this in the post.

If you want to create collections based on the various types in the Logos Library, use this syntax in the collections. Use a new collection for each line of syntax.

type:"Bible Commentary"
type:Encyclopedia
type:"Bible Notes"
type:Grammar

Plus any of the other types listed in steve's picture.

Hi, Kevin and Steve, where do I type them?

You can test a filter like "Type:Bible" by typing it into the "Find" field when you're looking at your library. If you want to create a collection with that filter, select "Collections" under the "Tools" menu. If the collection that comes up is named "Unnamed Collection", you can type in a new name to rename the collection. Then type your filter into the field below "Start with resources matching:". That will give you the same set of resources in that collection (at least as a starting point) as you would have seen in your library when using the same filter.

Hope this helps,

Donnie

Tes,

Let's step through and build a Collection.

1.  In the top menu click on Tools.

2. In the drop down menu click on Collections.

Logos will open the Collection Tool in your layout

3.  In the Collections tool window, click on New.


4.  Click in the name box, then type this name into it:  Bible Dictionaries

5.  Then click in the Rule box, then type this into it: type:encyclopedia AND subject:bible

Now your collection should look like this, you may have a different number of dictionaries and different books

Now you have a new collection named Bible Dictionaries.

 


Now let's add your new Collection to your Passage Guide as we study Luke 19:28-40

1.  Open your Passage Guide.

2.  In the reference box of your Passage Guide, type: Luke 19:28-40  and then press the Enter key.

3.  Then click on Add in the Passage Guide's toolbar

4.  Then in the drop down menu click on Collections

5.  Hover you mouse over the new Collection bar until you see Settings, then click on Settings

6.  In the drop down menu find your new Collection Bible Dictionaries and click on it.

7.  Now click on the Collections bar to expand it. Notice that you see various Dictionaries which have something to do with your passage.

So now you have organized you library a little bit to help you with the Passage Guide.

Amazing!Steve I am very excited.Today I am busy with my Bible study preparation,but tomorrow or perhaps let in the night ,which is around 6 o'clock PM your time,I am going to start it.I want to arrange all my resources according to what you have done it,it would be very helpful for me ,if you could make a list for me, to type on the Rule box.I have the platinum and plus I have bought many resources,but due to the problem of arrangement I could not use them , like figurative of speech and so on.I want you to give me a new start, really I am very glad ,this is a great contribution.God bless you ,and thank you all.

Blessings in Christ.

Thank you! I am new to Logos and this was one of my two biggest issues that I've been trying to figure out.  This solution is exactly what I've been looking for.

Hi Matt - and welcome.

You might also find the wiki article on collections - http://wiki.logos.com/Collections - useful to you.

Tes,

Before you start doing your whole library, first do the example i have shown when you get time. Then after you have done the example, post a screen shot of the Passage Guide showing the Collection bar expanded here in this post so i can see that you got it right. Then we can proceed in helping you make more collections.

Paul,

Have you found or explored the wiki? There are many step-by-step illustrated instructions on using different parts of Logos4. (see the wiki Table of Contents)

Hi Tes, I'm not Steve, but I noticed that you have put your "Bible dictionaries" collection in a Commentaries section instead of a Collections section in your passage guide. Bible dictionaries are not commentaries, so they are not indexed by Bible references, so the way you did it will not work. Go reread that part of Steve's instructions, as he explains how to do it right.
