Model Categories and Simplicial Methods
by Paul Goerss, Kristen Schemmerhorn - Northwestern University
There are many ways to present model categories, each with a different point of view. Here we would like to treat model categories as a way to build and control resolutions. We are going to emphasize the analog of projective resolutions.

Category Theory for Scientists
by David I. Spivak - arXiv
We attempt to show that category theory can be applied throughout the sciences as a framework for modeling phenomena and communicating results. In order to target the scientific audience, this book is example-based rather than proof-based.
