Good luck.

There are a number of things out there.  The best book for a
basic understanding of Protein Structure remains the book
by Dickerson and Geis.  Check your library.  It is about
20 years old, but the concepts have not changed that much.

I would also recommend the Protein Society.  They distribute a
program called kinemage for modeling protein structures and
the journal contains graphics on a disk.  Membership for
students is quite reasonable.
