Currently we are using OSPF as routing protocol in some of our routers. But now we want to migrate from OSPF to BGP. Can someone please send me a good documentation on how do it?

And if possible can also send the documentation on BGP (i.e. how it works and how to configure it) as I have never worked in BGP environment before.

You wouldn't want to migrate from OSPF to BGP--OSPF is an interior gateway protocol, BGP is an exterior gateway protocol. You would use the two in combination, OSPF (or EIGRP or IS-IS) for routing between routers that you (or your comapny) owns, and BGP for connecting to networks outside of your company.
