        ReadCOVID-19: Remote Research Library from Logos Bible Software

        Hi. This is Dr. Steven Ingino from Faithlife, makers of Logos Bible Software. Your school is working with Faithlife to make sure that you have access to a digital library while your school’s physical library is unavailable due to the coronavirus crisis. You'll also be able to use the incredibly powerful tools and features in Logos Bible Software.


        This digital library includes 1000s of scholarly theological resources for your research (commentaries, Greek and Hebrew resources, theological books, journal articles, resources for exegesis, preaching and teaching, church history, apologetics, devotionals, and more). You will also have access to our seminary-level Mobile Ed classes from renowned teachers and scholars.


        Access to this remote library will end on June 1st, but we trust that this will help supply the books and tools you need to finish the semester well from any location. Your school will have the option to subscribe to the remote library after June 1st (If you enjoy the library, please let your Faithlife group admin. or Dean know that you’d like to use this long-term).


        What resources are included in the library?

        • Lexham Press Master Collection (363 vols): This is the entire library to date from Faithlife’s own publishing house, including commentary sets like the Evangelical Exegetical Commentary Series and the Osborne New Testament Commentary Series. It also includes a Bible dictionary, Greek and Hebrew resources, works on systematic and biblical theology, NT and OT studies, church history, as well as books on ministry, sermon illustrations, devotionals, and more.


        • Classic Scholarship Collection (over 1,200 resources): We’ve pulled together hundreds of works from the most trusted Christian authors and teachers of all time: Augustine, Chrysostom, Irenaeus, Athanasius, Aquinas, Martin Luther, Charles Spurgeon, John Wesley, John Calvin, Stephen Charnock, John Owen, and many more.


        • Logos Mobile Education Courses: Students learn from top Bible scholars with access to our full catalog of online courses, including video lectures, transcripts, and activities to keep them learning wherever they are.


        • Galaxie’s Theological Journals (over 900 vols): These journals, which encompass over 170 years of academic research, represent the finest evangelical scholarship, analyzing current scholarly debates and making it possible to participate in cutting edge biblical and theological research.


        • International Critical Commentary Series (62 vols.): The ICC has long held a special place among works on the Bible. It brings together all the relevant exegetical aids—linguistic and textual, archaeological, historical, literary, and theological—with a comprehensiveness and quality of scholarship unmatched by other series.

        FAQs

        1) What if the resources aren't showing up in Logos?


        This could be for several reasons. You may want to start by restarting Logos. Make sure you are connected to the internet. Go to "Program Settings" and confirm "Download New Resources" is set to Yes. Also check the total number of resources in your library. Even if the resources haven't downloaded, they should still show up in the library.


        It is also possible that you are signing-in with your personal email address that you use for Logos but your access was setup using your student email address.


        If this is the case, contact the admin of your group and ask them to allow you to rejoin the group using your personal email address (navigate to the Faithlife group that was setup for your school and click "join." The school name/link at the bottom of this email should take you to the group, but you must be logged in with your personal email address/the address associated with your existing Logos account when requesting to join.)


        2) What if I don't want these additional resources or don't have space for them?


        You can stop the download in Logos if needed, but you can still access the resources through the web app. You can also click the group name at the bottom of this email and remove yourself from the group. This will exclude you from access.

        1. Is the remote library only open to current students? Can an alumni join the group?
          1. Hi Milly, Alumni can join the group as well.
        2. I also have the same problem as Moses that I seem to be able to follow but not join.
          1. I'm also having this problem! :/
          2. I also can only follow and not join.
          3. Hi everyone, The way the group is configured so that anyone can be a Follower but the group admin needs to make you a Member. However, regardless of being a Follower or Member, you should have access to the Remote Seminary Library.
        3. I am a current full-time student at Regent, but it seems like I can only "follow" and not "join" to become a member. Are there steps I need to take to become a member to utilize the remote library resources? Thank you so much for clarification.
          1. from what I can understand, iit appears that isae way to verify if the personis a Regent student since Logos keeps track of how many remote access library licenses are available and utilized by each theological institution
          2. Also trying to access Regent's library. Thanks
