[R] Version Number of a Package

Apologies if this is a stupid question.  I googled and skimmed the archives and 
didn't see anything specific about this.

I am documenting an analysis procedure in a DB and I would like to know the 
specific version number of each package that I use.  Is there a standardized 
way of getting that information out from R, or should I parse it out from the 
source-code files?  Ideally I would like a function like this:
myVerNum <- Version(package.names);

Any guidance, direction, or suggestions are very much appreciated!
