Linking a source to a repository

I found an image copy of a book in Open Library (http://openlibrary.org/). I created a record for the book in FTM 2012 using the template "Online Publication (Image Copy by Title)." I would like to link this source record to Open Library, which I created as a repository. However, the repository field in my source record says "No repository is specified for this source" and I am unable to edit it. I also don't see how when to add sources a repository when I look at the repositories in the Sources menu.

It seem intuitive to me that Open Library would be a repository containing lots of sources that one should be able to add. What am I missing?

Thanks for any pointers on how to manage this feature of FTM.
