[R] Sourcing files with library

Hi everyone,

I have written a class with methods that extend generic functions such as
as.data.frame or show.  When I load this package, I want to ensure that
these methods - along with the other functions in the file - are added to
R's search path or updated, if necessary.  I have made a package using

Will a simple library() call on the package accomplish this?  I recall
reading somewhere that there is a way to force the sourcing of R files
within the package, but I don't remember where...

Many thanks,
