I am in need of a resource that will help me develop an elctrical power layout and lighting layout for my basement project. What is generally accepted as a layout for these items?

Any and all direction is greatly appreciated.

What is accepted is up to your inspection department (commonly called the Authority Having Jurisdiction). Around here, a homeowner can get by with a really basic sketch.

Go by your local library & see if they have any books on electrical wiring. You should be able to find one that shows the symbols for the various devices you will install. Draw up a floor plan with the symbols in the approximate location they will be & try submitting that. If your AHJ wants anything more complicated, let them tell you what the requirements are.

One book that I know has diagrams that may be useful is "Electrical Wiring, Residential" by Ray Mullin
