Here is a collection of links I found incredibly informative on Kristin Nelson's Pub Rants blog (syndicated on LJ via [livejournal.com profile] pubrants). Noted here for general edification, not to mention example of an agent who knows her stuff. I highly recommend following her blog for those of you who, like me, are looking at doing the Plz Will You Be My Agent Kthxbye Dance:

Agenting 101 Posts. This is a series of posts that she did on what you need to know if you actually want to be your own agent, but it's also informative on what an agent does in general:

This is a post on what you need to say if you actually luck out and get The Call from an agent:

Most of the time, according to Ms. Nelson, calling an agent is Frowned Upon. But here are some examples of when it'll be okay:
