Exactly.  So you can say:

  (define-module (benson-project good-bits)
    :use-module (ice-9 slib))

  ;; or just (use-modules (ice-9 slib)) here instead...

  (define (some-local-function x y z)
    ;; whatever

  (define (some-global-function a b c d)
    (+ (some-local-function a b c)

  (export some-global-function)

Now if other code calls

  (use-modules (benson-project good-bits))

they'll be able to use some-global-function, but won't be able to see

Hope this helps.
