Here, where the packages are called 'categories':
http://haskell.org/ghc/docs/latest/set/book-hslibs.html

Unfortunately 'category std' is missing from this. But you can find some 
slightly less useful documentation on that here:
http://haskell.org/onlinelibrary/libindex.html

Unfortunately the Prelude is missing from this. But you can find some 
considerably less useful documentation on that here:
http://haskell.org/onlinereport/standard-prelude.html

Quite apart from the documentation, the Haskell library situation in 
general seems to be widely acknowledged as a bit of a shambles, and a 
serious improvement effort is ongoing.
