    Guys, I have made my very first Eagle library.

    U would not believe how easy and time consuming this was. I was at it like for 12Hrs.

    Had to try this. This relay was for the American Dryer OPL
    I got the relays from this Ebayer.

    What do you think of the lbr file.

    I do not use Eagle PCB. But what is inside the the lbr file. Is it a schematics symbol and a foot-print?

    Yes..both the symbol and the foot print are in the lbr file
    Just install eagle and put the lbr in it's library folder and then u can view it from eagle.
