Reading Lists

Reading Lists are lists of resources created and shared by other users via the Logos Wiki. These user-curated lists, which cover particular topics and themes, are editable by any Verbum user and fully searchable from within Verbum and through the Wiki. Find a list to direct your study or create a list for your class, and check off the specified passages as you progress.

Note: Changes you make to a reading list will affect what all users see, not just what you see. Reading Lists are community lists, not your own personal lists.

Access a Reading List

To browse available reading lists:

  1. Open the available reading lists.

    Click Tools and begin to enter Reading List in the Search bar. Select Reading List to view the available lists.

  2. Select a list.

    Browse available lists by scrolling down the column. Click More >> to view additional lists. You can also search for a list by entering a term in the Reading List search bar. For example, enter creed to view lists containing references to this topic.

    Click a list to see the resources it contains.


  3. Open a resource.


    Resources with a check box next to them are available in your Library. Click links to open the resources in a new panel. Keep track of your progress by checking the box.

    Note: Resources with a lock icon next to them are not currently in your Library. Clicking one of these resources opens a panel with information about the resource, a link to purchase, and some page previews. Resources with an external link icon direct you to a webpage outside of Verbum.

    When you close the Reading Lists tool, Verbum remembers the list you were viewing and opens that list the next time you access this tool.

 

Add an Article to a Reading List

  1. Open the list in the Logos Wiki.

    Open a Reading List and click Edit at the top of the Reading List panel. This opens the list in the Logos Wiki in your default web browser. Click the Edit tab.

    Note: If there are no items listed yet, look at some other reading lists to get ideas on how to organize them.
    OR
    Navigate to topics.logos.com, open the list you want to add an article to, and click the Edit tab.

  2. Copy the article location.

    Open the article in Verbum and click the panel menu icon . In the section marked “Copy location as” select RL.

     

  3. Paste the link into the Reading List.

    Insert the link into the Reading List using Ctrl+V (Windows) or Cmd+V (Mac).

    The link resembles this format:

    [[John Chrysostom, Homilies on the Epistle to the Hebrews 9 >> https://ref.ly/logosres/npnf14?ref=Chrysostom.Hom.+Heb.+9]] | Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers 1.14: Saint Chrysostom: Homilies on the Gospel of St. John and Epistle to the Hebrews

  4. Save Changes.

    Click Save. When you save your changes, the link looks like this:

    John Chrysostom, Homilies on the Epistle to the Hebrews 9 | Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers 1.14: Saint Chrysostom: Homilies on the Gospel of St. John and Epistle to the Hebrews

    Note: You can edit the text after the | symbol without altering the link.
