The Imperial Sourcebook, by Greg Gorden, was a West End Games supplement for their version of the Star Wars Roleplaying Game. It discussed the organization of the Galactic Empire in the aftermath of the Battle of Yavin.

The Imperial Sourcebook "is set in that turbulent time that begins with the destruction of the first Death Star" and "looks at the might of the Empire after Star Wars IV: A New Hope."
