Thank you.

Though, it's a paper on E6 and its subgroups, it also gives a very nice summary/ introduction on Lie groups and algebras and their classification.

I don't know which book is good for self-study, but the book Semi-Simple Lie Algebras and their Representations

http://phyweb.lbl.gov/~rncahn/www/liealgebras/book.html

is freely available. It wasn't freely available when I got it.
