Discover the National Library’s newspaper collection, which includes newspapers such as Syonan Shimbun, Singapore Chronicle and Commercial Register as well as the first issue of The Straits Times published in 1845.

Learn how you can access our newspaper collection through microfilms and NewspaperSG – an online archive of Singapore newspapers (
