Jose, I generally use the Needs statement to load a package. It avoids double loading and all the error messages that result. Say Needs["Graphics`Graphics`"] Then to obtain information on the routines in the package just use... ?Graphics`Graphics`* On Version 4.1 or later you obtain an active cell listing all the exported names in the package. If you click on any of the names you obtain the usage message for the name. (On earlier Mathematica versions you only obtain a list of the names and you have to use ?name to obtain the usage message.) Also on Version 4.1 or later the usage messages usually have an active "More" link. If you click on that it will bring you to the relevant Help page. (Private packages may not have that feature.)

Thanks
