Those are usually called static libraries.

First you need to set a path to the directory under Tools->Options->Projects->VC++ Directories->Library Files

Then Projects-> Properties->Linker->Input
and you add the name of the lib here, e.g. wsock32.lib.

You can also put
#pragma comment(lib, "wsock32.lib)
in a source file and it will link it in (this only works with MSVC, but since it's a comment the code will still compile on other platforms).
