This is the second and final article of the Eagle Tips from allaboutcircuits.com:

Before searching on the internet for new libraries to add to Eagle, first make sure that your device does not already exist in your local libraries. To check, use a search pattern that includes ‘*’.

For example, if you want to add a 7805 5v regulator, you must search for *7805* instead of 7805. This will search for any part with 7805 in the middle of the name, without regard for the beginning or end of the part name.
