It Goes On The Shelf is an electronic fanzine by Ned Brooks.

It Goes On The Shelf is created in Georgia, U.S.A., and hosted by fanac.org. 32 issues have been published as of 2011 and are available free online. Paper editions were at one time also published. The focus of the zine is on reviewing books, including rare books and older publications.

Back in the 1970s Ned Brooks did a zine called It Comes in the Mail which lasted 28 mostly bimonthly issues. He writes, "It worked on the basis that I would comment on everything pertaining to science-fiction and science-fiction fandom that I got in the mail. It died of success - with only an electric typewriter and a mimeograph machine, I could not keep up - the larger the zine got, the more came in the mail."

"It Goes on the Shelf" is, in Brooks' words, "...a more modest effort, and is now published only once a year. It's mostly about books that I find interesting."

Included is cover art contributed by Harry Bell (Grimwab), Sheryl Birkhead, Donald Corley, Brad Foster, Alexis Gilliland, Alan Hunter, Tim Kirk, Linda Michaels, Gavin O'Keefe, Dan Steffan (Boonfark), Steve Stiles, and Taral Wayne (DNQ).

Illustrations have been contributed by Sheryl Birkhead, Brad Foster, Sean Russell Friend, Alexis Gilliland, Alan Hunter, Ben Indick (Ibid), Terry Jeeves (ERG), Rick McCollum, Barry kent McKay, Julia Morgan-Scott, Phil Tortorici, and Taral Wayne.
