AVAILABLE SECTIONS ON THIS PAGE:
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 SEARCH?
You can search either using the basic or advanced search feature. A basic search is useful if you are starting out with your research and you would like to find as many records as possible that are relevant to a particular subject or theme. Should you wish to define specific search parameters, please click on the 'Advanced Search' tab, where you can search for records by selecting a particular source from the drop-down list. The Advanced Search will also allow you to search by a particular accession or microfilm number.
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.
HOW DO I REQUEST FOR COPIES OF RECORDS?
Should you wish to request for copies of certain records, please refer to the Ordering section.
Please note that all requests for copies of records will be subjected to copyright and access conditions. National Archives of Singapore may in most cases, but not always, be able to give you details of the copyright owner.
