He already suggested looking in R5RS, which you should really get
a copy of and print out for ready reference. It's only ~50 pages.
Print it double-sided and it hardly takes any room at all. (And if
you staple it between a pair of blank viewgraph foils it'll last
nearly *forever*.) If you're already using Scheme, you'll find it
really easy to read. It's widely avilable on the net as LaTeX source,
or preformatted in PostScript, DVI, or HTML forms (though I think
the PostScript version prints best):
