The Topic Guide is used to collect information from your library about a topic or concept.
Accessing the Topic Guide
To generate a Topic Guide from the Guides menu:
- Click Guides > Topic Guide.
Note: By default, the Topic Guide is pinned to the top of the Guides menu. It can also be accessed in the Guides section of the Guides menu.
- Enter a topic or concept into the Topic box and select from the dropdown list of suggestions that appear, or press Enter.
Note: You can also open a Topic Guide from the Selection Menu. Highlight a keyword or short phrase and select Study when the Selection Menu pops up to open a Topic Guide on your selection. Since the Study command searches for appropriate guides for your selection, this works best if your selection does not appear in the Bible (if it does appear in the Bible, Logos will open a Bible Word Study instead).
Using the Topic Guide
A standard Topic Guide has a number of sections containing different types of information. Scroll down the Topic Guide sections until you find ones that are relevant to your study. You can add additional guide sections by clicking Add at the top right of the Guide and checking the sections you’d like to appear. The sections and information available will depend on your Logos base package and the resources you’ve purchased. These might include:
This section provides one-click access to dictionaries in your library with articles on the topic you are studying. It also provides links to other Logos Tools and Search capabilities that enable you to explore the topic in more detail.
This section displays biblical verses or passages that refer to the Topic. It is split into Key Verses and See Also, as well as providing the ability to save the verses into a Passage List or to open your preferred Bible filtered by these verses.
This section provides access to media in your library that are relevant to the topic. Click one to open the resource containing it.
