I'm out of country and shooting 10 bit for the first time. My library is located on my MBP and the media is located on a Samsung T5 SSD. I'm beginning to be concerned about running out of space on that drive. (I didn't realize how fast I'd be using up my storage.) It is possible to buy a second T5 SSD here. But is it possible for my library to utilize media from two separate drives? If not, is there a way to create a second library, call it "Part 2", use that for media that won't fit on "Part 1") and then later, when I get back home, merge the two libraries?

The application has no problem working with media from two different drives. You need to work with external media so the media is stored outside of the library bundle. Set the storage location in library properties. You can change it at any time, so for instance, your first five events might have media that's stored on drive A, then you change the drive B, and subsequent events have media stored on the other drive.
