It's in the same place just, the library folder is now hidden with Lion. Here is few ways to deal with that.

The new way of viewing ~/Library is to hold the Option key and choose Go > Library in the Finder. You can even press Option after you drop the Go menu.

Once you can see the ~/Library folder, you can drag its icon (or its proxy icon from a Finder window’s title bar) to either the toolbar or sidebar of a Finder window. Once there, accessing it is merely a matter of clicking the icon.

If you’d just like your ~/Library to be visible normally in the Finder, that’s easy too; just enter this command in Terminal:

chflags nohidden ~/Library

And if you wish to reverse that action, just repeat the command without no, as in:

chflags hidden ~/Library

Ugh, didn't know that, few days away from upgrading to Lion. Thank you for the tip.

Looks like apple is going winblows with its overly pampering its users from doing stupid things. Confused

Apple always did a lot of pampering. Windows actually learned from apple (sort of, as they do it wrong).

But Apple's purpose is not pampering (Windows purpose is). Apple's purpose is to provide a user experience that is as detached as possible from the technical details. And concepts like "file" and "directory" are considered technical details that the user should ideally not be concerned with.

With Lion they'll take it up a notch. They are pushing toward a paradigm where you do not see the files and directories and not even know they exist (much less where they are).

In the future you would not be able to browse disks and directories at all (except, of course, with "advanced" tools or "hidden" commands or from the command line).
