The following books have provided valuable information for our ongoing library cataloging. Two books in particular have been indispensable tools that no band library should be without -  The Heritage Encyclopedia of Band Music, by William H.

Both have been out of print for several years, but the Heritage Encyclopedias are available again on CD-ROM from Walking Frog Records (catalog number WFR339).
