Free or nominally priced Internet-based sites for gathering export market information are identified and briefly described. Keegan's (1999) framework for a "Global Business Intelligence System" is used to organize the information which is contained in these sites. While the information which is forthcoming from the identified sources has utility for all exporters, new exporters may find the information to be particularly helpful. The use of these information sources by new exporters will enhance their knowledge in key areas (e.g., U. S. patent protection in foreign countries, U. S. export procedures, and foreign tariff information), thus (presumably) enabling them to export closer to their potential.
