exporting and importing meshes

im working on a scene with two turntables on a table and i worked on a seperate object for this scene in a different blend file. how can i import the mesh object from the seperate file to the current one im working on. thanks ahead of time.
i probably would have already found the answer although seeing as i have took up blender as a hobby picking it up and putting it down i have probably forgotten the proper terminology as to what this is called.

File -->Append or Shift+F1

cool thanks heres what i was working on…

Nice…!! maybe you would want to extrude a little ur text on the wall for some effects??
