+<h1>Using Code Igniter Libraries</h1>
 
-<p>The core libraries are the class files located in the "libraries" folder. 
-In most cases, to use one of these classes involves initializing it within your controllers using the following function:</p>
+<p>All of the available libraries are located in your <dfn>system/libraries</dfn> folder. 
+In most cases, to use one of these classes involves initializing it within a <a href="controllers.html">controller</a> using the following initialization function:</p>
 
 <code>$this->load->library('<var>class name</var>'); </code>
 
 
 <code>$this->load->library('<var>validation</var>'); </code>
 
-<p>Once initialized you can use it as indicated in the user guide page corresponding to each class.</p>

-<h2>Semantic Relevance</h2>
+<h2>Creating Your Own Libraries</h2>
 
-<p>The pattern you will  use when calling functions is this:</p>
-
-<p><kbd>$this</kbd>-><dfn>class</dfn>-><samp>function()</samp></p>
-
-<p>We've placed a high value on semantic relevance in the naming of our classes and functions.  
-Here are some examples of function calls you might use in Code Igniter:</p>
-
-<p><kbd>$this</kbd>-><dfn>email</dfn>-><samp>send()</samp></p>
-<p><kbd>$this</kbd>-><dfn>input</dfn>-><samp>user_agent()</samp></p>
-<p><kbd>$this</kbd>-><dfn>benchmark</dfn>-><samp>elapsed_time()</samp></p>
-<p><kbd>$this</kbd>-><dfn>db</dfn>-><samp>query()</samp></p>
-<p><kbd>$this</kbd>-><dfn>load</dfn>-><samp>helper()</samp></p>
-<p><kbd>$this</kbd>-><dfn>uri</dfn>-><samp>segment()</samp></p>
-<p><kbd>$this</kbd>-><dfn>lang</dfn>-><samp>line()</samp></p>
