Google them, my friend. They are all different libraries, so you have to search each individually. I know OpenGL is avaliable at opengl.org.

Windows provides the implementation of OpenGL32.lib, and the library is only written for version 1.1 of the OpenGL specification. There is no way to actually get a newer library. In the meanwhile you can access the functionality of higher versions of OpenGL through extensions. This article is a good introduction to extensions.

In fact OpenGL, OpenAL and OpenML by themselves are just specifications. They aren't actually *libraries*, but they are documents that tell developers how to implement the libraries, and how other developers should use the libraries.
