[Eril-l] EBSCO issue w/ vendors -- ebooks not accessible via EDS, only Pub Finder

Hello -

I'm not getting far with EBSCO on this and wondering if others are dealing with the same issue:

*       We order ebooks that are NOT EBSCO and I enable in Holdings Management, but this only allows accessibility in Publication Finder, NOT EDS
*       Usual work around that EBSCO has utilized is to create Local Collection of the books and then a CustomLink
*       Over the past month, I've been told there is a "glitch" that won't allow the creation of Local Collections so I'm collecting a "pile" of ebooks that aren't accessible via EDS
*       Kind of defeats the purpose of having a discovery layer if items can't be searched in it

Please let me know if anyone has encountered this and what they are doing to work around it/create access.

Thanks & kind regards,
