Down the rabbit hole


In this latest report on your usage of our new online collection, I'm going to look at entry points.

What's popular in a museum collection after a user interface change?


In last month's report we looked at what was popular on our collection site before we launched our new alpha version. I can happily report that traffic to our collection is up by almost a factor of three. That's three times as much traffic to our collection than before. Even when we exclude the burst at the announcement!
