Probably the most underrated text in our profession is The Diabetic Foot by Veves, Giurini, and LoGerfo. Aparently there is a paperback edition on amazon for a a rather inexpensive price, though your campus library should be closed down if they don't have a copy. Ch 16 on local wound care is well organized and a good starting point if you want to learn about different dressings. It's also highly relevant to the clinician, in contrast to some of the other chapters on pathophysiology.

If you're looking for info on stuff like whether you should use silver, alginate, iodosorb, what kind of dressing etc, then those will most likely be written by nurses and published in some wound journal, if you want surgical info on wound care then there's good review articles in the plastics surgery journals. There isn't a single article I'd recommend that would give you all the information you'd want, you'll need to read a few review articles.. and most likely there are new articles out that I haven't read yet that's better.
