WHAT RECORDS ARE AVAILABLE IN THE POSTERS DATABASE?

Informational and national educational campaign posters of the government comprise the bulk of our collection of over 5,000 posters. Produced in the four official languages, they throw light on the challenges facing Singapore over the years. The posters cover campaigns on national and social issues, including total defence, population control, water conservation, promotion of a courteous society and keeping Singapore clean.

HOW DO I VIEW RECORDS?

Both the metadata and low resolution copies of posters are made available on the database.

We do not provide the original posters for viewing as these are kept in a controlled and secured environment for long-term preservation and it is necessary to minimise handling and movements of these records.
