Here are some useful pattern library resources that I know of:
- 12 Standard Screen Patterns
- 40+ Helpful Resources On User Interface Design Patterns
- Designing Interfaces: Patterns for Effective Interaction Design
- Pattern Tap
- the Diemen Repository of Interaction Design Patterns
- The Interaction Design Patterns Page
- UI Patterns - User Interface Design Pattern Library
- iOS UI patterns
- Use Your Interface
Adding a few more resources I've come across to the many already great suggestions above:
1) Pattern libraries:
- UI Pattern Factory: http://uipatternfactory.com/
- Nokia Mobile Design Patterns: http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.php
2) Other related resources, blog posts, anti-patterns:

The UX Pattern Explorer by Infragistics Quince is great: http://quince.infragistics.com/
I have recently started my blog of safety-related HCI patterns for touch-based applications at patterns.intuio.at, a rather specialised collection of patterns.
Both are very useful, in comparison to Quince. The Yahoo! pattern library sets a nice standard that I enjoy referring back to as a resource. The Quince interface is a bit over the top to be something I would want to use regularly.
