Comment 6 for bug 1424690

Since you're talking about cataloguing and the circulation module, "F5" in
the staff client gets you directly to a "Display item" dialogue box. Scan
the barcode, then you can right click and "Show in Catalogue" to see the
complete bibliographic details. Helpful?

Let's see ...

Click - F5
Beep - Enter Barcode
R. Click

Scroll/Click
or
Ctr/S

Looks like there is no avoiding 5 click or strokes.

I do plan to change the order in the Number Search Field list so that
Barcode appears first. That will help some.
