I am trying to control the speed of a DC motor with a micro controller. Can someone reply with some resources?

you can use PMW !
the functions are:
1)PWM1_Init(constant long frequency) initialize the frequency parameter
2)PWM1_Set_Duty(unsigned short duty_ratio) to set the cycle , the value can be 0...255
3)PWM1_Start() for starting the PMW output
4)PWM1_Stop() for stoping the PMW  output

you can also google it! check this http://www.electrosome.com/dc-motor-speed-control-pic-pwm/ for further details

You didn't tell us what microcontroller You are using.

You didn't tell us what microcontroller You are using.
Or what programming language.

Or which motor and its specs: Voltage, Current draw.
And if the motor draws more than a few 10's of mA then you need a driver circuit.
Do you the motor to run in both directions (CW & CCW)? or just one direction?
This will determine if a simple transistor switch or a full H-bride is required.
