Faith communities are vital to healthy spirituality, so we built powerful tools for collaboration and sharing into Logos 6.
One of those tools—the Groups tool—brings Faithlife Groups’ collaborative power to Logos Bible Software. There are a number of groups that have sprung up as a way for Logos users to share their study techniques and insights. Many of these groups are all open, which means you can join them today!
Searching a huge library like Logos 6 Gold for references to a specific topic, reference, or concept can sometimes yield thousands of results. One of the best ways to narrow your search is to create a set of personalized collections so you can search more manageable subsets of your Logos library.
I’ve found that some of the most useful collections are author based, and I created a group to share those custom collections. A few other Logos users—friends of mine whom I met through our community forums—have added their own, too. Logos Author Collections has a useful set of custom collections, and you can add them all to your library today by joining this group.
Resource collections are only one of fifteen distinct document types in Logos 6. To get a taste of what each of these documents can do, join the Logos Sample Documents group, which has a few examples of each document type. Some of the documents—like a passage list of the “one another” commands in Scripture and a visual filter for all the imperative verbs in the New Testament—make great starting points for new lines of Bible study.
My favorite group is probably Logos Library Theology/Denomination Tags. A group of users worked for 18 months to create a comprehensive resource collection for every theological tradition, and this group is still working to tune their collections for accuracy and to account for new offerings as they’re added to Logos.com through Pre-Pub and Community Pricing. You can enjoy the fruit of their labor through this group.
We’ve learned that many users prefer to build a diverse library by picking base packages from several of our denominational lines. For example: a users might combine Logos 6 Reformed Platinum, and Logos 6 Anglican Platinum to form the backbone of their research library. The Logos Product Collections group has resource collections for both so that you can individually search and compare each set of content.
