C#'s "using" statement has nothing to do with libraries.
It refers to a namespace, not a DLL.

For the later you need to add the corresponding reference.
In Visual Studio we usually do this at compile time by adding
the reference of the DLL to the project.  In IronPython you
add the reference at runtime.

You want to look for clr.AddReference samples in the mailing-list
archives at:
