I just downloaded a new resource of ISBE 1915 (author James Orr, spelled Encyclopedia, publisher Ages Software). How does this differ from the previous resource (labelled volumes 1–5, four authors including Orr, spelled Encyclopaedia, publisher The Howard-Severance Company)?

In short it is the earlier 1915 version published by Ages, so the quality would not be as good e.g. not as well tagged.

However, it was my understanding that people with the Ages version would receive the Logos update and not vice-versa! I also received it but am dubious about its value. My wife also received it but after the download it disappeared**. Makes me think that a mistake was made...

** the Updates database shows it with status 3.

The Ages version cannot be searched for images whereas the Logos version can. Articles in the Logos version have an inline TOC e,g, Solomon.

The Ages ISBE is in the older Libronix format (.lbxlls) whereas the Logos ISBE is Logos 4 format (.logos4); potentially allowing more features (but I'm not sure if any have been used).

Sounds like I can just ignore it.
