Singapore/Malaysia Collection

Also known as SMC, Informit SMC

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University of Singapore Library, is a bibliographic database that indexes and abstracts items from published and unpublished material relating to Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei and ASEAN (as an entity).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. Subject coverage: Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei and ASEAN (as an entity). SMC is particularly strong in source material tracing the various aspects of the development of the Malay States, Singapore and the Bornean regions (excluding Indonesian Borneo); from their founding through the period of colonial government, up to independence and after. Excluded from this database are Chinese titles and titles published in Singapore or Malaysia but the contents of which do not relate to this region.
