Apple Music/iCloud Music Library and large iTunes Library

My iTunes Library is over 60,000 tracks. Some purchased from iTunes, some from other sources, some from old CDs that are long out of print.
I see that Apple Music/iCloud Music Library still have that 25,000 limit that iTunes Match had.
(1) What is the easiest way around this? I assume setting up a separate smaller iTunes Library?
(2) If I do set up a second, smaller library, I assume that any songs that I add from Apple Music will only be available when I start that second library from iTunes?
Thanks, Steve

iTunes Match, iCloud Music Library, and Apple Music are separate things.

FYI, there seems to be a ton of confusion about this. However you can use ALL of these separately and exclusively with the exception being that Apple Music includes iTunes Match's functionality and is therefore redundant. You can subscribe to iTunes Match or Apple Music....

Apple Music / iCloud Music Library has made a right old mess of my iTunes library :(

Nearly every songs been duplicated with a cloud version and a local version. Loads of songs I deleted years ago have come back (guessing this is my old iTunes Match content coming back to haunt me.) All my playlists are completely ruined and are now populated with random songs from my library. This is an utter shambles, I wish there was a way to just completely reset my so called cloud library and start again. Edit: And all my artwork is jumbled up, My Les Miserable album now has a picture... ...

iTunes: Local files, Apple Music & 'Use iCloud Music Library?' prompt

My entire music library––1,000-plus albums––lives on a hard drive and is ripped to Apple Lossless format; some of the files are 24-bit and 48/96/192kHz. For years, I've gone to considerable lengths to ensure that I'm using the highest-quality files that I can. After getting started with Apple Music, iTunes prompts me: Use iCloud Music Library? Since you have music on this computer, your playlists and songs will be combined with your iCloud Music Library. You can change this in...R...

iCloud Music Library broke my local iTunes library

I enabled iCloud Music Library on 10.10.4 this morning. After a few minutes of syncing, almost all of my local tracks had a cloud with an x icon next to them, and most of my playlists had a lot of their songs missing. I also noticed that it had deleted the local copies of a lot of my tracks. I restored the whole iTunes folder from a previous backup and I am back where I stated, but is there any way to sign up for this and not break my local library? It may be relevant that I signed up for Appl...

Adding music to Apple Music Library Without iTunes

It's rather simple, just ask Siri. She can also add albums at a time. Just ask her to play a song/album then while its playing ask her "add this song/album". Give it a try EDIT:don't say to my music or library because then she won't... Weird bug...

iTunes: Unable to Access Your iCloud Music Library

So, I updated my iTunes to 12.2 earlier tonight and everything seemed fine. But now, whatever I do, I'm unable to get Apple Music to work on iTunes-- for one, it doesn't update with the songs I added on my phone; also, anything I try to add to my music on iTunes does not actually add. When I'm in the "My Music" tab, in the upper right, I get a cloud/lightning bolt that says "Unable to Access Your iCloud Music Library." Anybody else getting this error or hav...

Apple Music broke iTunes Match library?

I should preface this by saying I have absolutely no interest in Apple Music, Spotify or any streaming services. After upgrading to iOS 8.4 on my 128gb 6+, I was unable to access any of my music from iTunes Match that wasn't already on my phone. It was as though the only music available through iTunes Match was what was already on my phone. After messing around with the settings, I opted to disable iCloud Music Library on the phone, deleted all saved songs and then re-enable it. This had a we...
