How to Create a Digital File Cabinet in Logos

This may not be completely doable (at least as I envision it), but I'd like to create a kind of database file in Logos that would be essentially a digital file cabinet--something that I can add searchable notes to (like quotes I come across or ideas I want to save for future use). it would be something like a topical index, but one I could edit as needed.

I use a note file for annotating passages of scripture; this would be more for general ideas not necessarily related to a specific passage. For example, I would have an entry for "Feasts" with sub-entries for The Feast of Unleavened Bread, The Feast of Tabernacles, Passover, etc. Under these I would add information I find relating to each feast.

One last feature--if possible--would be to include links to resources in Logos and also to other entries within the same database. So in addition to the feast entry "Passover," which might focus on the edible aspects of the feast, I might also have "Passover" as a primary heading which would include thoughts and resources relating to the theological aspects of it.

I hope I'm describing this adequately. Basically, I have numerous notes, post-its, emails, and other types of data collectors that I would like to compile into a single, integrated resource inside Logos. Does that sound doable? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

God bless,
