Import partial/portion of shapefile

Many times I have shapefiles that cover large areas (countywide). I would prefer to simply import only a portion of that data that surrounds a particular site (small area of interest AOI). Is it possible to limit the import area to screen limits or a selected object?

    Hi!
    Select the desired areas with the digitizer, right mouse button, EDIT - Edit selected features.
    And export new layer.

    I'm trying to not import the entire countywide coverage when I first load that data. I am aware of your process, thanks. I want to limit the initial loading of data to just the small area around my site.
