A keyword search for "IPv6" in the Library Catalog will actually lead to some quick answers that don't require heading in to the library.

Catalog IPv6 search results.

In particular, there are two e-books linked from the catalog that offer a history and brief explanation of IPv6.

Looking for more indepth and technical information on IPv6 implementation or transition?

Try a keyword search in either IEEE Xplore (from the Institute for Electrical and Electronic Engineers) for IPv6 or in the ACM Portal (from the Association for Computing Machinery).
