What's the best resource for learning about cheese-making processes (in general and for specific cheeses)?

I am fact checking some info for a cheese guide app and I've run into a wall. I need to learn more about the cheese-making process so that I can determine whether the examples given are accurately categorized. In particular, I need to learn more about the process of "cooking" and if parmigiano-reggiano, grana padano, beemster, and manchego cheeses are pressed or unpressed.
I've already contacted makers of these cheeses but have yet to hear back (and I'm on deadline). Food Lover's Companion does not go far enough in depth for the information I need. A book like FLC but just about cheeses would be an ideal source, but an online source (that is not Wikipedia) could also work. Alternately, if anyone is a cheese expert (seller, maker) I can reference by name and expertise, memail me so I can ask you more specific questions/get a cheese-making-process lesson. Thanks!
