Saving Time in the Library with Logos

by on September 9, 2008

First off, this post will only be helpful to those who own a Logos Library. If you don’t own Logos yet, you might want to after you read this post. If you go shopping after this, remember you can save 25% on your Library purchase using the code goingtoseminary.

Now, imagine if you had the ability to search the content of 5,000+ books and find exact locations of a key phrases or verses for a research paper. Do you think that might be a little bit helpful? Well, if you’re a Logos user, you have that ability right at your finger tips. See, as I discovered the other day, Logos allows you the ability to search the entire content of all their books… even the resources that you haven’t unlocked. What this means is that you can search the entire Logos library and find what you’re looking for, even if you don’t own the title!

Now, you might be thinking, “Great… but I still don’t own the book. How is that helpful?” Simple. By doing this search you can find all the books that reference your search query AND the exact page number that the result is found. Here you have two options. First, you could just buy the book in Logos and have it available right then and there… OR, head over to the library, find the book on the shelf and flip directly to the page you are looking for. Imagine the time this will save you!
