Creating Study Folders

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.

When I studied with print books, paper, and ink I created numerous study folders. For example, I would take a file folder and label it Forgiveness. Then as I read books, articles, etc about the subject I would place copies of the articles or notes to myself in the folder. In the future when I studied forgiveness I could return to the folder for all of my previous research.

In Libronix, you can create electronic study folders called Favorites Folders. Choose Favorites | Organize Favorites. Click New Folder. Name the Folder and click OK.

To place a Favorite (bookmark or link) in that folder, open the desired resource to a specific location. Choose Favorites | Add to Favorites. Click the specific folder to place it in. Click OK.

To open the Favorite, choose Favorites | the specific folder | the specific favorite.
