There is Dr Jasak's thesis, which is a must for people using OpenFOAM (just google it and you will find right away). And also Versteeg and Malalasekera book on CFD.

I have seen in many posts, that limitedLinear uses the Sweby limiter function. This is not correct.

If you look at the code of the limitedLinear.H file you see:

scalar limiter
         const scalar cdWeight,
         const scalar faceFlux,
         const typename LimiterFunc::phiType& phiP,
         const typename LimiterFunc::phiType& phiN,
         const typename LimiterFunc::gradPhiType& gradcP,
         const typename LimiterFunc::gradPhiType& gradcN,
         const vector& d
     ) const
         scalar r = LimiterFunc::r

             faceFlux, phiP, phiN, gradcP, gradcN, d
         return max(min(twoByk_*r, 1), 0);
I have plotted this function in the r-psi(r) plane, limitedLinear.png
