Reading Lists

NOTE: Please DO NOT EDIT THIS PAGE and try to create your own reading list here. This is an instructional page on how to create a reading list on a topic. The instructions below will tell you how to create a reading list on the appropriate topic’s page.

The Basics

The Reading Lists feature in Logos 4, which is found under the Tools menu, allows users to read articles and books from their library on a given topic. These reading lists are user-created and editable by the Logos community. Each reading list corresponds to a particular topic here at http://topics.logos.com/. There can be a reading list on the Septuagint or Kenosis or any other topic. Any Logos user may edit and contribute to any reading list. Keep in mind that changes you make to a reading list will affect what everyone sees, not just what you see. Reading Lists are community lists, not your own personal lists.

Here are some basic instructions for creating a community reading list.

Search for Your Topic

Type the topic you’re looking for into the search box in the top left hand corner of this page. (You might need to put your search term in quotes to avoid being taken directly to the page that is an exact match for your search term.) Click on the appropriate topic to view the page.

Edit an Existing Reading List

Look at the bottom of the page to see if there is already a Reading List section. If there is, click “Edit” in the top right hand corner and following the pattern of the existing entries to add additional ones. If there are no items listed yet, look at some other reading lists to get ideas on how to add items and how to organize them.

When you find an article in Logos 4 that you’d like to add to a reading list, click on the book cover icon in the top left hand corner of the resource panel, and then click on “RL” after “Copy location as.” This will copy the location of the article to your clipboard. You can then paste this into the reading list you’re editing. It will look something like this:

* [[Faith >> logosres:nbd;hw=Faith]] | The New Bible Dictionary, Third Edition

When you save it, it will look like this:

  • Faith | The New Bible Dictionary, Third Edition

There should be no need to edit the author of an already existing list. If the reading list has been created by Logos, the author will be

!! Reading List
{{?set section::readinglist}}
{{?set author::Logos, Community}}

and should likewise be left as is.

Create a New Reading List

If there is no reading list section for the topic you’re working on, you can add one by clicking “Edit” in the top right hand corner of the page at Topics.Logos.com and then pasting this at the bottom of the code box:

!! Reading List
{{?set section::readinglist}}
{{?set author::John Jones}}

Replace “John Jones” with your first and last name. Then begin adding links to relevant articles as described in the previous section. To get ideas on what to include in reading lists and how to organize them, view some of the existing reading lists. Here are a few examples: Magnificat, Septuagint, and Kenosis.
