import: An Import Mechanism for R
Version 1.1.0

This is an alternative mechanism for importing objects from packages. The syntax allows for importing multiple objects from a package with a single command in an expressive way. The import package bridges some of the gap between using library (or require) and direct (single-object) imports. Furthermore the imported objects are not placed in the current environment. It is also possible to import objects from stand-alone .R files. For more information, refer to the package vignette.
