Importing models?

hiya, just a quick easy question.

I am looking for the same function in Maya that I use alot in 3DS. In 3DS, you can "Merge" (import) models from another scene (file) into your current one. It allows you to pick a single model from the imported scene to be imported into the current scene.

I know Maya has the import function but it seems to import all the objects. I just want to import a particular model.

Is this possible in maya?

From the lack of replies, I assume Maya can't do this?

I find that really hard to believe which means you guys probably have a work around to this or don't need to use this function?

My only thought for a workaround is to load up the scene with the model that I want to import>then delete all other objects>save file under new name>load up current scene file>import new name file.

Any other ideas?
