Are you trying to say "Cronbach's" alpha?

If you are then the best ref (IMHO) is:

Cortina, J.M. (1993). What is coefficient alpha? An examination of theory and applications. Journal of Applied Psychology 78 (1): 98-104.

The second part of your depends on how much you know, and what you want to do.

But try:

Kline, P. An easy guide to factor analysis. Comrey and Lee. A first course in factor analysis. Lewis-Beck (Ed.). Factor analysis and related techniques.

As a few hints for starters. (Don't aconymise that last one. :-)
