How can we improve Talis Aspire Reading Lists?

digitisations

Can we change the wording in reading lists for digitised readings to 'PDF' rather than 'digitisation" and 'click here to get pdf' rather than
'To view the digitised content for this item please log in'.
I dont think some people understand the word digitisation and that they have to click on that to see the reading. Today I had an academic who also wanted this information higher up in the page because she didnt even see it

The new list view has allowed us to review the wording and how a digitisation is linked to, to make this more inline with the other item information in the list. This should resolve the issue of students not being able to spot the link to the digitisation.

    The word "digitization" doesn't mean much to students (it makes more sense to Librarians). Is there a way to alter this wording? Perhaps PDF or Chapter PDF? or something user-experience tested.
