The Press Clippings Collection is produced by the librarians at National university of Singapore as early as 1957. The scope of the collection covers newspaper articles on Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei and ASEAN (as an entity) published in The Straits Times, The Sunday Times and The Business Times.
While you can search most of Straits Times online now, these press clippings help collocate print articles of the same topic/subject together.
