Amazon.com   These books are all available at Amazon.com (I've set up links to them there), although some may only be available used and most are probably available locally in any well-stocked bookstore(if you can still find one of those). These are ones I'm personally familiar with. A search on Amazon for low salt in Cookbooks turned up thousands of items, so you do have plenty to chose from.

AccuChef   The software I use is called AccuChef. It's both a recipe and nutrition analysis software ... let's you print out things on index cards or cookbook sized pages etc., but it also does the institutional calculations. It will give you the figures for any of about 30 different nutrients that you ask for and can even print out a facsimile of the nutrition label. It uses the USDA nutrient database, which has about 6000 entries, but you can customize the different ingredient entries and it will both save them and remember which one you said to use. So the first time can put in a recipe that calls for canned tomatoes, it will probably match it to a regular salted entry. But if you change that to a no salt added one and change it to match the exact figures of the brand you use, it will use that from then on. You can download a trail copy that you can open 60 times or buy it for $19.95, which seemed pretty reasonable to me.
