Ever wondered what librarians do? In this monthly series of talks, find out what makes our librarians tick as they share highlights of their work and from the National Library and National Archives collections.
Join us for a double-bill feature on the Japanese Occupation featuring Gracie Lee and Fiona Tan from the National Library and National Archives! Find out more about the available research materials relating to the topic, the Japanese occupation and its legacies in Singapore through highlights from our collections. Plus, get a sneak peek into the newly revamped exhibition at the Former Ford Factory.  

Fiona Tan is an Assistant Archivist (Outreach) at the National Archives of Singapore, where she conducts research to promote interest in the archive’s rich documentary collections. She is also involved in the curatorial work to revamp the exhibition at the Former Ford Factory.

Gracie Lee is a Senior Librarian with the National Library where she works primarily with its rare collection. In her most recent article in the library’s quarterly journal BiblioAsia, she delved into a 1946 book from the Raffles Library collection that featured war-time churches in Singapore under the Japanese Occupation. She was previously involved in the development of the library’s ephemera collection and NewspaperSG, the library’s online newspaper archive.

Admission is free but registration is required.
