CTRL + < or > to shuffle through item records in Sierra

Jess (who credits Alice) showed me a trick in Sierra that may be common knowledge but was new to me.
If you want to shuffle through a list of ITEM RECORD displays in Sierra, you can use

CTRL + < (backward) OR > (forward)

This saves you from having to close the item record, open the next one, etc. My usual use case is checking the # of circs on a group of item records.

Sorry if this is a big "DUH" to everyone, but I found it to be a revelation. Thanks Jess (and Alice)!
