Sharing iTunes Library

I have a large music library on my iMac under my Apple ID. Is it possible to set up home sharing so that my sister can access my library on her iPad without having to have my Apple ID log-in?

Basically, can you share a library across multiple devices and multiple IDs, without them all being logged in as me?

Yes, go to iTunes preferences, and under sharing check the "share my library on my local network" box and that should be it. Once your sister is on the wifi, just open the Music app and choose shared and it will load your iTunes for her.

Perhaps I;m being daft (probably!) but I can't find 'Shared' on the Music App?

Ah, sorry, just checked my iPad. After you have done that, you need to go to the iPad settings and to music, then sign in with your Apple ID (you only need to do this once, and it doesn't affect the anything else). Then back in Music go More>Shared
