I'm curious what would be recommended for a collection. I'm coming from Logos where I have the Portfolio package and a lot of other resources. I've been waiting anxiously for Accordance to come to PC and I would love to get on the beta team but if not I will grab it when it hits the shelves. But I'm trying to figure out the best strategy for selecting modules. I don't mind picking up modules that duplicate what I have in Logos or Olive Tree where it makes sense which is probably things like dictionaries, lexicons, etc. But probably not commentaries or general monographs.
I'm leaning toward the Essentials collection, at least as a start. It seems to include all the basic features and give a good base to begin with. There are some things in Advanced that would seem good to have (though I have them in Logos): IVP, ISBE, NASB, and a few other minor things. But I don't really need to duplicate those commentaries which I already have elsewhere, so I'm wondering if it makes sense to start with Essentials and then add bit by bit or is it worth it to move on up?
I guess the main thing I'm wondering is what is worth duplicating in Accordance that I already have elsewhere? I don't mind having several copies of the same references in different programs where it makes sense to do so, where it will help me most in my studies. What's the best strategy here?
Relevant facts about me & my intended usage: I don't know any original languages yet, though I plan to learn greek at some point. I am not in school or in ministry. I'm just a lay person with a deep thirst for learning. I think what attracted me most to Accordance is the search features in Accordance and the analytics. It also seems to have a nice streamlined and intuitive interface (judging from watching the podcasts). And I've read a lot of good posts from users who also frequent the forums for the other bible softwares.
