Try this for high-level overview:

And here are some best practices documents for the 4500 and 6500, though they is generic enough to apply to other platforms.

Look around CCO. There are a lot of good docs out there.

Go to and then select Campus, Two design guides

HA recovery Analysis

Routed ACcess Design

Finally VSS design guide will there shortly.

The previous reply has good info too - but it more operational. Above design guide helps you in terms of architecture and design view point.
