Brief Notes

The Singapore/Malaysia Collection (SMC), produced by the National University of Singapore Library, is a bibliographic database that indexes and abstracts items from published and unpublished material relating to Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei and ASEAN (as an entity).

Source documents: A good deal of the SMC source material consists of microfilmed items of public records, government documents, rare serials, newspapers and manuscripts. SMC also includes academic exercises and theses submitted to the National University of Singapore and its predecessor institutions as well as to universities abroad. Other valuable source items include company reports, current journals and directories. The items are mostly in English and bear imprint dates from as early as 1596.
