QUESTION: Progressive/Radical Listservs, Blogs, Facebook pages, etc

question / pregunta: 

I am researching progressive listservs, blogs, web-journals, and news sources for the International School for Bottom-Up Organizing. We want to be able both to learn what people are addressing, as well as send out information on what we are doing so that there can be cross-collaboration and movement-building.

We're especially looking for groups/orientations that address or are interested in the following: anti-oppression, women-led/feminist, people of color led/anti-racist, community organizing, anti-authoritarian and are not limited to the U.S. or to english. The point is to be able to connect people who are actually doing this work, or who want to.

I know that there are millions of such resources... but getting a start would be immensely helpful- I imagine that someone has already done a lot of this work! Thanks so much!

QUESTION: Publisher's Weekly, and others' near-monopoly on library collections

question / pregunta: 

I'm having a hard time finding information on this issue. I am looking for some sources/information relating to publications like PW, Library Journal, and Booklist. It seems like the majority of libraries use these few publications to develop their collections and I would like to know the politics of what determines which titles get printed/reviewed in PW, LJ, etc. I'm looking for info on things like: are the review publications and titles that it reviews owned by the same company, do publishers pay to have titles favorably reviewed, are certain big sellers not allowed to be reviewed too poorly? Simply put, I'm looking for some dirt on these publications, so I can look at them more critically. Also, any recommendations of review materials that cover things more independently, or focus on marginalized publications like leftist politics, or small press fiction?
