You can get API information on the access web ( http://theaccessweb.com ) and, specifically, APIs are here:

note, this is the same thing Dale mentioned, but a new link -- everything has been moved since we were told the old link was going away

What is it exactly that your looking for?

 My suggestion would be that rather than scoop up a bunch of API's that you may never use, you look for the required API's when you hit a specific situation.

  In general there are a few that you can always use (getting the computer and logged in user), but there are others that hardly ever get used (turn window painting off).

Also be aware that many of the API's have changed with the advent of 64 bit.  For dealing with that, you should look at the following:

Compatibility Between the 32-bit and 64-bit Versions of Office 2010
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee691831(office.14).aspx

Make sure you read the section "Introducing the VBA 7 Code Base" carefully.

These are the 32 bit calls modified for 64 bit:

There is also a code inspector for 64 bit:

and here's a list of all the calls that are new for 64 bit:
