OPAC: Account Summary confusing

Bug Description

The format of the Account Summary is needlessly confusing.

Line items like "Items Currently Checked out (n)" are immdiately followed by identical text as a link. Why not just have the link text as "Show" or "See list"?

Adding a note that for Evergreen sites that have enabled the ebook API for Overdrive or OneClickDigital, this isn't exactly duplicate information. See screenshot at http://www.screencast.com/t/64JHB9pyUk

It's hard to tell with my account since I have no checkouts, but it appears as if the count is broken out by total physical items and total e-items. Whatever improvement is made here should work in cases where the API is and is not enabled. Instead of the link showings as Items Currently Checked Out, I could see it just saying "Physical Items" and "E-items," but then that Physical Items label would look weird for sites that did not enable the API.

Actually, I like the way Sitka has customized it, as shown from this screenshot from their documentation. https://docs.libraries.coop/sitka/images/opac/opac-eresource-1.png

This has been updated so as to not duplicate the text and provide links on each over at https://bugs.launchpad.net/evergreen/+bug/1778972. Still maybe needs a design update but this issue is fixed in that bug fix
