Oddly, the Oxford Works Ed. by Wells and Taylor isn't a bad start. 
Though many of their other 'facts' are wrong, their list of sources for 
plays is a useful thumbing resource and memorial aid I find. Also of 
course the most famous and inclusive is Bullough's 'Narrative and 
Dramatic Sources of Shakespeare'. Several volumes, very useful!

All best,
Marcus

It's in dictionary rather than catalogue form, and unfortunately, I 
haven't found anything on ballads in it, but, on the basis of some 
fairly cursory dipping-in, I would much recommend Stuart Gillespie's 
Shakespeare's Books: A Dictionary of Shakespeare's Sources (Continuum, 
2004). This is part of Continuum's Student Shakespeare Library, which 
also includes volumes on WS's Legal Language, Military Language, and 
Theatre.  Gillespie provides both thorough discussions and extensive 
bibliographies.

About a list of sources:

This page from Tufts seems to be the best place for a composite list. 
Not much done with it in recent years, apparently. When I first 
discovered it, I had been expecting more:

http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/sources.html

Perhaps it is only a compilation from Geoffrey Bullough's 8 volumes.

My grad students did some work on Sources and for that class I 
rearranged a list of clickable sources; the first 15 we used so they are 
itemized. (The rest of the list is subdivided into other areas and not 
as pertinent to the poster's question.
