How to import devices from external library?


I’m new to KiCad. Just wondering: how would I import this library to KiCad:

I need to use a BB device contained in this library, not found in the built-in KiCad library.

@Minimo, the easiest way is to copy-paste the definition between lib files as text.

If you already have your own custom library, open it and this burr brown lib as text files in a text editor of your choice, locate the definition you’re interested in and copy it from one to another. The files are easily human readable.

Going the text editor way works but gets tiresome. I recently came across KiCad Librarian, which seems to work pretty well for that task:

Another option is to simply add that library to you project via the “Preferences > Set Active Library” dialog in the schema editor.
