In case you'd like to get access to more details than what's mentioned online, I can really recommend the books by Ralph Kimball.  Especially the first three in that list. Have a look at the table of contents to judge which one would help you the most.

As tool, seeing you've got SQL Server, you'll probably be interested in Integration Services (SSIS).  In that perspective I'd recommend the books by Brian Knight and Erik Veerman.
