How do I transfer non-purchased iTunes tracks (just specific tracks) to another Mac?

    I have a Mac desktop with a very large iTunes collection. This is all music that was not purchased from iTunes and is non-protected so I won't be dealing with issues over protection.
    My wife has a new Mac laptop and wants to get some tracks from my collection. It is several hundred or more and I know it would be hard to go through the actual folders on the computer and find all the tracks. A lot of times the folders and names don't seem to match what's on iTunes so this can be hard to do.
    Is there a way I can simply choose which songs directly within iTunes to copy to her computer? I'm just looking for an easy way to copy what she wants from my collection to her iTunes collection?
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    You can drag things from iTunes right to the desktop or any folder. If you turn sharing on in your wife's computer and mount it on your computer, you can drag right to her hard drive or a folder on her computer. It does not remove them from iTunes, it simply makes a copy.
