[R] object(s) are masked from package - what does it mean?

Sometime when I attach a dataset, R gives me the following message/warning:"The following object(s) are masked from package:datasets: column_name". Does anyone know what it means? Since it seems that the dataset was attached and I could manipulate the data from the dataset without problems, I am wondering what was R trying to tell me.
