There are a few ways to go about sharing an i Tunes Library like this, but unlike moving the i Tunes Media collection to another drive, you can’t simply change the media location within preferences to get it to work (this may be a bug with i Tunes 12, that remains to be seen).
Instead of going the Preferences route, you can use a little-known trick to force i Tunes to either rebuild or reselect a library, and it works flawlessly to share libraries across drive partitions.

My network at work does not allow access to the i Tunes store, but that is ok.
You’ll now have the exact same i Tunes Library accessible from both partitions and from whatever versions of OS X are running on each.
