I tried to compile some of them. I do not know if all links are up-to-date :

Would be great if you could put your course materials online some day. Feel 
free to keep me posted.

http://www.barre.nom.fr/vtk/links.html#documentation see "Books"
see "Bookstore", Kitware has several references to various scripting 
languages books, including "Brent B. Welch : Practical Programming in Tcl & 
Tk.". I'dd also add "Tcl and the Tk Toolkit", Ousterhout. But I guess you 
have them.
