The old Plum-Hall (Plauger) library is still available in the Obsolete
folder on the Tools CD

You know the best is the ANSI standard, you can purchase this from the
ANSI/ISO Committee (it is now open for discussion until the end of
February) The address can be found on the comp.std.c++ news group I
believe this is the address
1250 Eye Street, Suite 200
Washington, DC 20005
The cost is $55 and may be paid for by check or by credit card.
I think Plauger has a book on it too but may not include everything (but
if Amazon.com didn't have it, it may not be in print yet)
I tried to give examples in the MSL C++ Reference for streams classes, but
for others you might want to look at a tutorial such as the STL Reference
and Tutorial by Musser and Saini.
