This is a bug for metarecord searching. These are the related bugs:
Good news! This was addressed recently! The fix was merged for the 2.12
release. You could patch your machines if you were feeling adventurous:
Addressing the holds issue is a different story. It seems benign when an
electronic record is included in the group considering there are no
copies on the electronic bib. You could* change your fingerprint
configuration to include the format but that would defeat the purpose of
"Group formats and editions"

Hello, we just started adding marc records for our overdrive and
EbooksMN (biblioboard) collections and now I’m noticing that meta
holds will apply to these records. I’m wondering if there is some way
to exclude titles that cannot have copies (set in the bib source) from
being included in a meta record grouping. I thought that the main
reason to use metarecords was to take advantage of meta holds, so it
would seem to make sense to not include titles that cannot have copies.
Here is an example of what I’m seeing. When I do a search for
“Fantastic Beasts and where to find them” and group formats and
editions, out catalog groups 4 titles together, two books and two
The display shows (2) copies, but also shows the icons for the
electronic copies. But if you click on the metarecord, only the two
physical copy records are shown. So it basically hides the electronic
records from view/use.
If I place a meta hold on that metarecord, and leave the format
unselected, one of the electronic copies has been chosen as the master
record, so the hold looks like it is on one of the electronic records,
and the electronic record title is shown to the customer in the holds
I tried to find a discussion about this, or any related bugs but I
didn’t have any luck.
Any tips on how I can adjust this behavior would be appreciated.
