Subject Index

Today’s guest post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris has trained thousands of Logos users at his two-day Camp Logos training seminars.

In the back of many print books is a subject or topic index. You know how it works. Look up a subject like heaven, and all the page numbers where the subject is discussed are listed. In Libronix, you have the equivalent and more of this subject index. It’s called the Topic Browser. It can be found on the Go menu of the toolbar or opened with the keystroke Ctrl + T.

When it opens set the In box to the books you wish to search. Type in the Find box a word. This is the subject you would normally lookup in a subject index. Click Search. All of the topics containing your word are listed. Now click a specific topic. All of the places discussing your specific topic are listed! Click an article to jump to that location.

  1. Topic seraches are pretty neat. However, sometimes the subject index in books list the most relevant pages of discussion. Does Logos search incorporate those as first importance?

  2. JJ,
    I am not certain as to how results are actually populated. I have inquired about this and if I am able to track down an informative answer, I will be sure to mention it here.
