Importing models

I’m pretty new to Blender, but I have a good deal of experience with other 3D applications, and was just wondering where the Blender model import is?
If I’m working on a large poject, and want to have several people creating different Blender models for me, how can I import those models into one main scene? For example, if I have 5 people each creating a complete boned, skinned and textured character, how can I import each model into my main scene? Is there any way to import animated characters that someone else has created for a Blender model? I see lots of Import stuff, but nothing for a Blender “Object”.

You want to be looking at the concept of “Using Linked Libraries” from the File -> Append menu. Have a look at the following Blender documentation page and see if this helps:
