Verbum Advanced Search Training

, 2016



Verbum’s Advanced Search Training builds on the Verbum 360 Training videos by taking a deeper look at Verbum’s powerful search capabilities. Whether you’re trying to prepare a homily, answer an apologetics question, or write your dissertation, these powerful tools will transform the way you use Verbum. Fr. Devin Roza, LC, is visiting Professor of New Testament at the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum, and Fr. Andrew Dalton, LC, is Professor assistant of New Testament at the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum. They teach you powerful search tips to get exactly the results you’re looking for.

You’ll take a look under the hood at how searches work, so you can more intelligently compose queries. You’ll learn how to find better information within existing tools, and how to compose completely new searches—the sky is the limit! With advanced searching, everything is immediately within reach.

    These are excellent. Explanations and examples are very helpful. Thanks!

    Great course! I wish this had been available when I first got Logos. Verbum training in general is better than the Logos Pros training since it's more focused on teaching you how to use the software to do real tasks instead of trying to get you to buy more stuff or upgrade your library. I love how Frs. Devin and Andrew not only explain how to perform a search but also the logic behind how the searches work.
