Categories originally arose in mathematics out of the need of a formalism to describe the passage from one type of mathematical structure to another. These notes form a short summary of some major topics in category theory.

Jacob Lurie presents the foundations of higher category theory, using the language of weak Kan complexes, and shows how existing theorems in algebraic topology can be reformulated and generalized in the theory's new language.

A modern introduction to the theory of structures via the language of category theory, the emphasis is on concrete categories. The first five chapters present the basic theory, while the last two contain more recent research results.

A categorical framework for modeling and analyzing systems in a broad sense is proposed. These systems should be thought of as 'machines' with inputs and outputs, carrying some sort of signal that occurs through some notion of time.
by P. J. Higgins - Van Nostrand Reinhold
A self-contained account of the elementary theory of groupoids and some of its uses in group theory and topology. Category theory appears as a secondary topic whenever it is relevant to the main issue, and its treatment is by no means systematic.
