[Haskell-beginners] Fetching a URI

I'm trying to write a wrapper for a REST service. However, I find
myself stumped by the simplest part: merely performing a GET on a URI.
I'm using the HTTP Cabal package. It specifies an example like so:
> simpleHTTP (getRequest "http://www.haskell.org/") >>= fmap (take
> 100) . getResponseBody
However, it seems I'm either importing the library incorrectly or
there is a discrepancy between the documentation and the library. I
can't seem to call getRequest.

> Prelude> import Network.HTTP
> Prelude Network.HTTP> :type getRequest
> <interactive>:1:0: Not in scope: `getRequest'
Am I missing something obvious here?
