Private Papers

 

 

The Library has in its custody private papers collections of 22 prominent individuals from Singapore and Malaysia. These private collections provide historical perspectives on social, political and other aspects on Southeast Asia. Library users are welcome to refer to the papers. However, we need at least a week's notice of your arrival at our Library. Please complete and return (via email or fax) the Private Papers Usage Agreement form back to us prior to your visit.

In order to reduce the risk of handling originals, private paper collections that are already digitised, only the digital surrogates will be released for viewing.
