Working with linked Objects from 2.79 in 2.8

Hi Forum

I have a large architecture model containing a lot of linked objects (lights: emissive neon bulbs & area light together). After opening the File in 2.8 it’s showing the instancing in the properties/objects menu 02

But in the outliner this collection does not show up - so how does it work now with the linked objects in Blender 2.8?

Do i need to open the linked file and save it as a 2.8 version? Wouldn’t it be great to be able to open the linked files from within Blender 2.8? As before with an addon named “edit linked library”? Or is something else there?

Hoping for some 2.8 collection magic that i may have missed so far

Thanks, hollah
