The generic place for libraries nowadays is hackage:
http://hackage.haskell.org/packages/archive/pkg-list.html where you find

The 'Hierarchical Libraries' do not exist as such; all modern Haskell
libraries use the hierarchical module name extension for their exported
modules. There are, however, a certain number of libraries that are
regularly shipped together with Haskell implementations. All of them,
except those which work only together with a certain compiler/interpreter
version (e.g. 'base'), are avaiable from hackage.

BTW, it would be nice if hackage would list repository locations, too, if
available. The one for 'network' library is not mentioned on hackage; I
found one here: http://darcs.haskell.org/packages/network/
