Primo Registration Service collections should be editable by Ex Libris staff
As a discovery librarian I would like the Primo Registration Service (Collection Activation) to be editable by Ex Libris staff so that resources incorrectly set as collection-level resources could be reset to Subscription (Linkresolver) level. This would mean large numbers of false positive search results in Primo UI could be reduced.
Background: the Oxford Research Encyclopedias collection has been set up in Primo Registration Service as a collection-level resource and delivers Primo search results for every title in the collection, whether subscribed or not.
It includes 27 separate encyclopedias on diverse subjects (we have only 2 titles).
These are new titles and will be continually added-to in coming years. The current 12,700+ articles are expected to increase substantially over time, producing increasingly large numbers of false positive search results.

It's my understanding that Ex Libris does edit the collections to change them from Link in Record to Link Resolver, when possible, such as when a provider gives better data later.
They only use Link in Record when they have to ie "The Link in Record availability type is usually provided when the vendor cannot supply sufficient metadata for matching against holdings, or when it is the only way to reach the full text (for an image collection, for example). PC prefers to use the Link in Record method for free for delivery collections and for subscription collections when holdings matching cannot be used."
I would think that the issue with the example provided of Oxford Research Encyclopedias is that the citations don't have good data for Link Resolver matching eg ISSNs, so they've fallen back to Link in Record as the only option.
