How to Save Thousands on Your Library

base-packageBecause resources in base packages are significantly less expensive than their print equivalents, upgrading your Logos 5 base package can save you thousands of dollars. (The best part is that, with Logos’ integrated tags and hyperlinks, these collections, commentaries, and devotionals are actually worth far more!)

Upgrading also gives you big savings on individual digital titles. For example, Platinum, which costs $2,149.95 before upgrade savings, includes six resources that, if purchased separately, cover the cost of the entire package. That means you’re getting the remaining 1,364 resources (and all the features) for free.

Not a bad deal, right?

All our base package upgrades offer incredible savings. Here’s how some of them break down:

  • Resources: 2,585
  • Print price: $78,000
  • Logos price: $4,979.95 before upgrade savings

Get Free Updates to Logos 5

Logos 5You have two ways to get the latest, best software from Logos: not only upgrading, but also updating.

Upgrading means moving to a new base package to get new resources, datasets, and features, like Clause Search, Bible Sense Lexicon, and Topic Guide. When you upgrade, all your current resources get transferred to your new base package.

Updating, on the other hand, builds on your upgrade and is absolutely free. Updating allows you to take advantage of continual improvements to the software and products—for life. That means that when you upgrade your base package, you’re not making a static purchase; you’re investing in a dynamic resource that will continue to improve as it updates.

Here’s what you can look forward to with free updates for life:

1. Improved books & resources

We make regular updates to Logos resources, fixing typos and adding tags, hyperlinks, and footnotes. Take the Anchor Yale Bible Dictionary—a little over a year ago, our team added 70,000 hyperlinks to bibliographic references, data types, and other Logos resources. We also added citation data and tagging to a wide range of illustrations and thousands of articles. [Read more...]
