The Sourcebook for Wind Band and Instrumental Music is by Frank L. Battisti, William Berz, and Russ Girsberger (ISBN 978-1-57463-177-7, $39.95). This Sourcebook was created to aid directors and teachers in finding the information they need, and expand their general knowledge.

Information was also solicited from college/university/school wind band directors and instrumental teachers. Section 1 includes general resources about music; section 2 is features specific resources like the heritage of wind ensembles, biographies of important figures, and archives; section 3 focuses on identifying important works for wind bands; section 4 is about library staffing and management.
