Search All of an Author’s Books

Tips & Tricks blog SetToday’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.

From My Library you can initiate a search in all of the books by a particular author.

Right click on an Author’s name like Chambers. Select Search All These Resources. When the search dialog opens enter your search query and click Search.

Now you can see what any author including Oswald Chambers has to say about a word, phrase, topic, or Bible verse.

    The problem is (as discussed on the newgroups) that one author can be denoted in 4 or more different ways for different resources based on how the publishers included it in the copyright notice.
    But this technique works well for works that were all published together (like Luther’s works or the lifeworks collections).

    Authors:
    There is almost never a time when I don’t WANT to know what author I am accessing in Logos. I don’t always need to know I am looking at NICNT (yea! for Logos getting this resource!) but I definately want to know I am looking at RT France. If I am using Ben WItherinton’s commentary, I want to know that.
    Is there any way to get AUTHOR information to simply display in the Title Bar of the resource? It is hard to believe that others wouldn’t find this highly useful too. When using many commentaries/resources it is such a nuisance to have to drill down to find author information…. it should just be there. Any ideas how to do this?
    Thanks!
    JJ
