Lightroom Library Management Tips Needed

I understand and use most of Lightroom 4.4; however, I am really lacking in understanding the Library and it's management. For example, I need to re-organize my folders into more categories without creating chaos. Currently, I import photos into new folders into 3 main folders. I can pick these during import;however, the Library (left side) shows all the folders without the breakdown into the 3 main folder categories. Confusing to find a folder. Also, I will soon need to remove some folders from the HD to create space. They will be transferred to an external drive. How does Lightroom handle this and still leave photos in the Library (or not). I may still want to plug in the drive and retrieve selected photos in Lightroom. Any good references etc appreciated. Thanks

Greg
