Assuming that the name of the package is Nodal.m and you have put it in the
Nodal directory, then you should be able to load it by:


The first part of the loading name is the directory it is in, and the second
part is the package name. Mathematica automatically looks in the
AddOns/StandardPackages and the AddOns/ExtraPackages directories.

A better place to put the package might be the AddOns/ExtraPackages/Nodal
directory, where it will be kept separate from the standard packages and yet
will load by the very same statements.
