Hi, I personally started learning emacs by reading the "Emacs tutorial"
that's linked to on the start page. It is good IMO. Then of course
it's a masthodontic program and, once you know the very basics, you'll
just google stuff as you need it (or use the very good internal help).

If you want then to use orgmode (which is all kind of awesomness) I
suggest to print out the compact guide - first list entry on this page:

Then again, once you have a basic idea of how org works, just read the
manual sections you need, as you need them - in your case the Links and
Properties sections as pointed out by Rustom.

So you'll probably won't care about the Agenda and TODOs (at least for
the moment), but you'll probably want to know how to navigate through
headers, Links, Properties (though these are only useful for Agenda
Views? not sure never really used them myself) and maybe Tables.

Have fun :)
