Apologies if this has already been covered/answered.

In iTunes 7 is there any way to split the music into two libraries?

I have 1,890 songs but I only listen to about 500 of them on a regular bases. The rest are 'just there' - as i'm studying a media & music course, so basically for reference.

I'd like the ones i listen to all the time in one library, and the ones i don't listen to in another. I've tired in the past creating playlists and smart playlists, but with the others playlists i have it's become complicated and annoying.

Thanks for any help on the matter

Has anyone used this and created two libraries? Just before i do it i've got a question to ask.

Does the libraries (say two music) appear under the library tab and you can select which one(s) you like?
Similar to what you do in Mail with different inboxes (see below)



Or do they switch to completely new/clean iTunes?

Thanks to anyone who can shed some light on this question.

Never mind, I tried creating another library and I've answered my own question. A new library creates a clean iTunes - which SUCKS!
Would love Apple to release an update which puts "the second library" under the original... again... something like what Mail.app does. And you can click on them separately or whole.
