A good starting point would be on one of the neutron source homepages, e.g.

which has plenty of "first-timer" information (at a low level), but more
importantly, contact names and e-mail addresses; my guess is that you
would want to talk/write to someone like Chick Wilson (ccw at,
say I sent you...) who will be able to give you information that is
relevant to you (even if ISIS isn't the right place for your experiments).
