Help finding a part/library for a part

Post by WhatDoesThisButtonDo » Sat May 27, 2017 5:29 pm

I'm very new to Eagle AutoCad and I'm having trouble finding a specific RJ45 connector that I need. I've found the part on the DigiKey website but I'm having trouble finding a library to download that includes this specific connector (RJLSE4238101TCT-ND). I found a library from the supplier to download but it doesn't include the connector I need. What does one do when they're in this situation? Should I just keep looking for a better library to download? Any suggestions or links would be appreciated.

If you can't find one already made, you have to make it yourself.

Thanks. I think I got it! It wasn't as bad as I had worried it would be. I'll be sure to bookmark these for future projects.
