Mike T's site http://miketechinfo.com/new-tech-wheels-tires.htm is good stuff and links to Roger Musson's as well, can't go wrong between them. Sheldon Brown's wheelbuilding info is very good, too...

Gerd Schraner (http://www.scribd.com/doc/26719057/Gerd-Schraner-The-Art-of-Wheel-Building)
and Rgoer Musson (http://www.wheelpro.co.uk/wheelbuilding/book.php)
Are good places to start.

Depending on what you're looking for, I found Brandt's book (http://books.google.ca/books?id=sZPHOQAACAAJ) to be a great guide for figuring out what I wanted to build and how to do it. Not a website, but I borrowed it from a library (free) and, after reading it, photocopied a few pages (cheap) :) though I haven't been able to find where I stashed them lately.
