Is it ok to place the sefer that you're learning from slanted on top of another sefer/sforim - sort of like a shtender or is is this considered to be a zilzul (disrespectful) to the sforim?

This is a shailo that is disputed among the achronim. The Taz in Yoreh Deah (as pointed out by @DoubleAA) says that it's ossur. However see OC Siman 154 in the M"A Sif-Katan 14 that seems to say that this would be muter. See also the M"B in Siman 315 Sif-Katan 30 that brings the Taz however he ends off with the M"A that is makil along with the Chaiya Adam in Clal 31 Sif 48. The Kitzur Shulchan Aruch is also matir (what I have written down in my M"B, however the exact source I will have to look for later.)
