Track or Library, that is the question...

So I'm a newbie. I noticed that the Track and Library is similar and therefore seems redundant. I'm wondering if the usual process is to go through the Tracks and then once finished, utilize the Library for more in-depth learning...

Hi Steve

All the content from the Tracks will be in the Library. However, the Tracks don't contain all the content from the Library.

The Tracks were added to give people something to follow, a suggested path through the courses. If you're new to everything you may want to pick a track as a guide, you can always go into the library to pick out something specific. When I started the Tracks didn't exist so I am used to picking things in the Library.
