You could start here (http://mathworld.wolfram.com/Wigner3j-Symbol.html). The page gives an explicit formula due to Racah for the 3j-symbols and has links to pages about the 6j-symbols.

Brings back memories from my graduate student days. Of course, that was 20 years ago, so this didn't bring back any formulas, I Googled to find this. (Google is your friend!) :)
