Documents and Publications

Books, magazines and ephemera are traditional mediums for information. There are also unpublished records such as manuscripts, literary manuscripts, typescripts, play scripts, private papers and thesis as primary materials which are valuable to future research efforts. These documents and publications help researchers understand a episode, movement or interpretation at any point of Singapore’s history, and provide opportunities to open up new fields of study. Find out more about these formats and make your contributions here.


Ephemera printed in Singapore such as brochures, flyers and printed guides from events and places such as arts performances, government agencies, groups and societies inform the daily life, the public sphere, and the spaces where they intersect. It could also be music scores and lyrics that have been created by Singaporeans. Do you have any of the above? We welcome your contributions to help preserve important moments and people of our shared legacy and ensure a future appreciation of history. Works should be copyright free or owned by the contributor. For works in physical format, please convert them into digital format first by scanning.
