Shield outline library for EagleCAD

There didn't appear to be a better forum to post this in, so apologies for being OT.

Was wondering if there's a custom EagleCAD library which has the shield outline for the short protoshield in it? The standard sized Uno shields are in several libraries, but the short shield would be ideal for a PCB I'm thinking of having made, since it coexists so well atop Seeed Studios' Bees shield.

Failing a library, I suspect I should start with the ProtoShieldShort.brd file and remove all the footprints off it but thought I'd ask first.

Hi Geoff,

The shield board layouts in that Eagle design (and most FT shields actually) are just simple pin headers placed in the right locations, so the approach you described is probably the best one.
