40 Government Sites You Can't Live Without

I was looking for more cool resources for you when I came across a November 2003 article in Entrepreneur magazine online, with the title shown. While the other librarians and I have cited some of the sources they've included, there are a few others that you might want to check out.

Business Basics

Business.gov: "Sponsored by the SBA, this site asserts that its purpose is to make the relationship between business and government more productive."

U.S. Postal Service: "The USPS delivers when it comes to helping you figure out the ins and outs of shipping your precious letters and packages. Of particular interest: a section on direct mail—how to do it, rates and mailing info, templates, FAQs and more."

Also in this section: SCORE and something called the Small Business Development Centers.

Business Opportunities

Cited here:
Export.gov: "Register to receive the Export.gov newsletter, and you'll get monthly updates on feature articles, trade events and new market reports."

FedBizOpps: "This site boasts it's the 'single government point-of-entry for federal government procurement opportunities over $25,000.'"

The page also features Government Branches and Agencies, Legal Aid and Information, Money Matters, and Research and Business Development.

I'm not sure I'd agree with the assessment that one "can't live without" some of these sites, but many are quite useful.
