If you're not as concerned about tracking specific titles, you could use
blanket purchase orders to record the funds used. So say encumber $10k for
Overdrive billed to XYZ fund, and then any invoices that come in are put
against that encumbrance.
Our libraries who record e-resource purchases in Acq don't load bibs or
generally even use the blanket purchase orders. They get the invoice from
Overdrive/EBSCO/etc and create an invoice and use direct charges. We have a
direct charge type of "E-Materials", they choose the fund(s) they want to
bill it out to, and split up the invoice amount amongst those funds, save
and close. They don't input titles or anything like that. So there's
nothing linked to the catalog, but they are accounting for the purchases in
their fund balances.
