How do I find an agent and / or publisher on the web?

I am writing a book and I am about 1/2 way through writing but would like to start looking for an agent or publisher. What is the best way to do this, or is there a website or someplace to get started? The book is a vampire novel if this helps. I am not in school and just writing this on my own. I don't want to publish the book on the web, but would like to find a list of agents or publishers that are legitimate on the web.

Get a feel for agents who represent the genre of work you're producing and how they prefer to be approached. You'll want to compare your list of agents... More
