Top 5 Strategic Collections for Searching (Logos Bible Software)

Here are my top 5 favorite collections for improved searching with Logos Bible Software. By searching a collection instead of your whole library, you get fewer search results to read through and better search results.
NOTE: Results may vary depending on the depth and breadth of your digital library

Search your Theological Resources:
Collection Name: 06-Systematic Theology
Collection Rule: (title:”systematic” AND subject:theology) OR title:dogma

Search your Theological Journals:

Collection Rule: subject:”Theology–Periodicals” OR title:vital OR type:journal -type:commentary -type:magazine

Searching Books with Cross References:
