"I certainly never write a review about a book I don't think worth reviewing, a flat-out bad book, unless it's an enormously fashionable bad book." --
says, John Gardner in Conversations with John Gardner

23 Resources for Getting Published in the Library Field

PS. These 23 identified resources are not from my desktop. This is a compilation by Ellyssa Kroski @ OEDB.Org and found @ ALA JobLIST
Although this is for librarians and by librarians, on one side  it is not a one stop shopping window, because it simply needs further research to decide which one is best among the apples and oranges, and which are not so good apples and oranges; on the other side depending on your skills and experience (even if you are not a librarian), you can use these to find your own destination. This further research is the best practice and the tested approach, more so in a world of open source and self publishing. In short, these 23 are just pathfinders, not the ends.
