    Everyone on the family has their own account on the main computer. So they each have their own iTunes library.
    I'd like to be able to have iTunes to be able to access at least two libraries. One, my personal and two a shared library.
    I envision a library on an external disk drive that has all the family friendly music and stuff. And a personal library that's not for the kids. But I want it to look like one big library.
    Is this possible?

    iTunes only allows you to read from one library at a time. However if you start iTunes whilst holding OPTION then it lets you choose which library you want to use. Alternatively, you could use set of aliases in your own library that point to the external drive's library. That'll fool iTunes into thinking the files are actually kept in its own library. :)
