On other Stack Exchange sites, requests for learning resources and books would be closed within minutes as off topic. Is this allowed here? Why?

Regrettably, I think not.

Though information like this would certainly be useful for many users, a collection of answers that each say "I found this link useful when learning about designing menus. Hope you like it!" doesn't fit well in this format.

From the what-not-to-ask page:

You should only ask practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face. Chatty, open-ended questions diminish the usefulness of our site...

Perhaps if our chat wasn't entirely dead, I'd recommend directing people there to ask these questions...
