    Hey guys,
    I just have got my mini set up along with my Western Digital external HD connected to it. My iTunes library is on that and I just told the mini where to look. Now, my question is, is there a way to access that using my MBA? I would to "import" that library and use it just not take up any HD space.

    You could share the iTunes library from the Mini and then just connect to it from iTunes on the MBA (that's what I do with my Library). Alternatively, you could turn off the following options in iTunes Prefs: Keep iTunes Music Folder organized and Copy Files to iTunes Music Folder when Adding to Library (See attached picture)
    Then, drag the media files into iTunes and will add them to the library but access them from the shared drive
