    How to add alternating-page headers?


      I am doing a large (500-page) book where every page will have its own page name. So p. 225 will have a page number AND a name (like "Bicycles") on the top of the page in a header. They'll be 500 names. I would like the name-header placement to vary left/right on alternating pages just as page numbers can do. On both right or left-handed pages the name will always be on the outside top.  Is there a way to make a header text-frame on the Master page so that the content of that header switches left side to right side as (and if) the pages are re-ordered, sort of the way that page numbers can do? I looked through help and previous questions but didn't find any answers. I'm working in InDesign 5.5.
