    I do a podcast (http://www.jumblejumble.net). I have a huge music library strictly for my podcast, I also have another music library that is my main one, not related to my podcast.

    Is there a way to have TWO music libraries inside of iTunes? Right now my main library is in there, but not my podcast only library. I want to have them both managed in iTunes, but separately.

    Can this be done?

    Hold the option button while on a mac as you click the iTunes icon and you can have as many libraries as you want.

    So what happens though? Does it only show you the one library you choose after you select it? It does not erase any library right, i assume it will just point to whatever library you tell it to, and the other option is still there but not shown... ???

    All it does is it points iTunes to the location of the library to use. So yes, it's only one at a time, and no, it does not erase anything.
