Unfortunately we had our training budget at work ripped out from under us so now we are forced to setup a library filled with books so we can teach ourselves.

I was hoping some of you could offer some suggestions on the following subjects.

Windows 2008 Server
Windows 7
Microsodt SQL 2005/2008
SharePoint
Exchange
Citrix XenServer 5.5
Citrix XenDesktop 4.0
Citrix Provisioning Server
Cisco Switching and Routing
Cisco Storage Networks
Fiber Channel
iSCSI

The people who will be utilizing these the most are senior level engineers.

Thanks in advance.

I am not sure.. I am kind of anti-printed material.
Not because of trees, but because of revision changes.

Would subscriptions of support contracts that open up the technical docs work?

I'm not much on printed material either but it would be nice to have something where i could take a book with me during my commute (I take a train to and from work) or where some of our less technical savvy people can learn if they are so inclined.

Not everyone likes reading on a computer, especially when you spend your 8 hours a day staring at one.

Cisco Press

These are the official cisco books for all their different certifications, so it should cover everything you need for your Cisco gear.

Also Microsoft Press books.

Official MS books, has Windows 7, Server 2008, SQLServer, Exchange, Sharepoint, etc. I figure that the best resources are straight from the manufacturer.

I tend to go for the printed books just because it feels more natural to have a big thick book on the table next to you while you are working instead of switching back and forth from your browser to some other window when you are learning something.

I don't know if it's available yet, but Mark Minasi did such an outstanding job with the Mastering Windows 2000 Server and Windows Server 2003, that would be the first thing I think I'd look into for 2008 Server
