James Cook University Library measured the outcome of removing some library jargon from their website. No surprise, things look positive:
The Catalogue and the more meaningless Tropicat were replaced by Books, DVDs & more.
Hits up 10%
Bounce rate steady
Reserve Online replaced by Readings & Past Exams.
Hits up 100%
Bounce rate down 25%
Databases replaced by Journal Articles
Hits up 90%
Bounce rate down 60% (but meaningless as most links are to external sites in the old target page)
Super happy they shared this.
