Recommended SSIS


I am working on a project to migrate several large access databases to a MSSQL 2016 database.  I've completed the migration and created all the stored procedures and necessary views as well as tables.  However, approximately 50 files will have to be imported into the database on a weekly basis. I don't know much about SSIS but have used the SQL Server Import and Export data tool to import the data.   I would like t use SSIS to import these files.   However, I don't know that much about SSIS.  What books would anyone recommend for learning SSIS. I've had quite a bit of database experience (MS Access and some MSSQL, including sql and T-Sql but minimal SSIS.  Thanks

I havent worked with ssis since 2008r2, but there are tons of books out there.
But there is also a wealth of information on the web.
SSIS can be a beast to master but for basic ETL its very straightforward.
As with everything with SQL Server practice, practice, practice.

There are lots of articles on using ssis for exactly your purpose of multiple files and pre-determined intervals.
