John Fidel:

I actually converted all my collection rules to tags a few years ago. It is very efficient and not that my entire library is tagged, I can easily tag the resources I add. I think it is the best way to resolve the issues with collection rules.

I just did the same. But the large rule for the Historical Commentaries (1750-1950) is too long and does not work in the Library window. Unfortunately, I am not smart enough to break this rule down into two parts so that I can use two tags, which I then combine with a simple collection rule. Can somebody help me with this? Here is the entire rule:

Armin:

John Fidel:

I actually converted all my collection rules to tags a few years ago. It is very efficient and not that my entire library is tagged, I can easily tag the resources I add. I think it is the best way to resolve the issues with collection rules.

I just did the same. But the large rule for the Historical Commentaries (1750-1950) is too long and does not work in the Library window. Unfortunately, I am not smart enough to break this rule down into two parts so that I can use two tags

+1 Yes for creating mytag collections using Mark Barnes collections with historical group modification (split Modern into two time periods plus added Contemporary & Recent):

  • Commentary1Antiquity (prior to 0599)
  • Commentary2Medieval (0600 to 1500) - some Library resources have Subject metadata: Middle Ages, 600-1500
  • Commentary3Reformation (1501 to 1749)
  • Commentary4Awakenings (1750 to 1900)
  • Commentary5Modern (1901 to 1950)
  • Commentary6Contemporary (1951 to 2000)
  • Commentary7Recent (2001 to Present)

FYI: reason for mytag collections is cache refreshing in a library having ~5,000 Bible Commentary resources (mytag is significantly faster than complex collection rules, but does require manual tagging of new Bible Commentary resources).

Sorting Titles in Library with Year prefixing provides easy way to select range of commentaries for historical grouping. Some commentaries quote Early Church Fathers and Medieval authors so prefix has range of years with mytag having more than one historical commentary group.

Added Jewish indicator to my Commentary Title conventions: (Asterisk has six points => Star of David reminder for me)

Commentary Titles (with preference for shorter abbreviated title to show in Passage Guide, Search Results, Tabs, ...)

  • ?< for Plagiarism Alert
  • #### for Year (content composition, which can be a range of years)
  • Language suffix: null = English, g = Greek, h = Hebrew, L = Latin
  • Jewish * OR Goyim (Gentile) space
  • Series (Abbreviation OR Initials of Primary Author)
  • (Author) is comma separated list of last name(s)
  • Separator is = for Top 2 and : for others
  • Original Title (helpful for searching Logos.com and forum resource discussions)
  • Optional suffix (Year translated/published)

Abbreviated Title

  • #### Year (helpful for series with more than one commentary on a book)
  • Series (OR Author Initials) abbreviation
  • Jewish * OR Goyim (Gentile) space
  • Bible Book abbreviation(s)
  • Optional volume #

Two Library screen shots show Title variety:

Note: my custom series "Top 2 Commentaries" includes many volumes from https://www.bestcommentaries.com/topcommentaries plus several historical resources, especially Jewish commentary: e.g. John Lightfoot & Dr John Gill understood Jesus was Jewish so their comments include Rabbinic insights.

Has this been confirmed by Logos?

Cache refresh time depends on the number of collections and rule complexity, and logs confirm that it can take 40 secs or more. Faithlife claim that the new {....} extension syntax is much faster e.g.  {Author "Harris, Don"} instead of author:"don harris".

mytag: is faster because one tag can replace a complex rule involving many Authors and Titles. Also, you can use {MyTag "..."}.

When diagnostic logging is enabled, any collection search that takes over 250ms is written to Logos.log OR Verbum.log file: e.g.

2020-06-19 08:17:07.0456  WARN 373 LibraryCatalog | (273ms, exceeded 250ms) Searching for all records matching: MyTag:Biography, Subject:(Autobiography,Biography,"Cranmer,Thomas","Hus,Jan",Martyr,Memoirs,Orphan,"Watts,Isaac","Wright,James",Wycliffe), Title:(Autobiography,"Biography of","Christian History","Correspondence of",Elisha,"English Baptists",Labors,"Letters of","Life of","Life and Letters of","Life and Times of","Lives of","Memoir of","Memoirs of","Memorials of") -Series:(Manuals,NIV,Pillar,Social-Science,Tyndale) -Title:"Life of Fellowship"

Note: my current Logos.log session had this rule taking over 250ms twice while Collection Cache had been refreshed 11 times. Withdrew older Biography rule collection from being shared with Logos Collections => https://faithlife.com/logos-collections/activity followed by sharing an updated Biography rule collection from my demonstration account (updated rule finds 11 in small demonstration library and 1,066 in larger purchased library so search time is noticeably different for collection cache refresh):

{MyTag "Biography"}, Subject:(Augustinian,Autobiography,Biography,Carmelite,"Cranmer,Thomas",Erasmus,Grotius,"Hus,Jan",Isidore,Judson,Martyr,Memoirs,"Meyer,F.B.", Myles,Nee,Orphan,"Patrick,Saint",Simpson,Ussher,"Watts,Isaac","Wright,James",Wycliffe, Zwingli), Title:("12 Who Changed the World",Autobiography,Biographical,Biography,"Christian History","Correspondence of",Elisha,"English Baptists","Every Christian Should Know","Historical Works of","Introduction to the Works of",Labors,"Letters of","Life of","Life and Letters of","Life and Times of","Lives of",Memoir,Memoirs,"Memorial of","Memorials of",Memoriam,"Missionary to", Princetoniana,"Story of") -Series:(Manuals,NIV,Pillar,Social-Science,Tyndale) -Title:"Life of Fellowship"

Personally have experienced Collection Cache refresh taking a long time occasionally => Bug 8.14 Beta 1 Crash & Sluggish Collection Cache on macOS 10.15 and earlier Logos 7.13 Beta discussion mentioned collection cache refresh being faster after completely rebuilding Bible & Library index => Bug 7.13 RC 1 Search does not show Library results after 5 hours
