"Inside COM+ Base Services" From MS Press is the first book you should
read.  It should probably be read by anyone trying to do serious COM
work.  There is at least one chapter on Type Libraries in the book.

Once you get through that the library reference at should fill in the blanks.

However, both of these references will assume you know C/C++
reasonably well (and maybe some VB on msdn).
