How To Create A New iTunes Library

iTunes libraries offer you the chance to sort your music by genre, mood, season or era. Libraries make accessing and searching for your music much easier. You can file holiday music in a separate library, so that it is not included on your regular rotation of songs.
I am sometimes asked , how do I create a new Itunes library and this can be so:

  • Your music library is out of control with multiples and you cant be bothered sorting them out
  • You want to file ceratin music catagories in sepearte in  libraries

Whatever your reason it is fairly easy.

When you open iTunes just hold down the shift key and a dialogue box will appear.

Itunes new library

Click on "Create Library"

Itunes new library2
