Discovering Rajaratnam -- more books & other works

I learnt from the Singapore Heritage email list that the Singapore and Southeast Asian librarians from LKCRL have put together a display of works by and about the late Sinnathamby Rajaratnam (or S. Rajaratnam, as most people know him) on the Singapore and Southeast Asia floor (Level 11). Drop by the National Library at Victoria Street if you're interested.

My colleague, Timothy, also explained the following in his post to the email list:
Unfortunately we had to make the decision not to include his articles from the Tribune, Standard, Raayat & Straits Times - there were simply too many from his 11 years of journalism. We also skipped covering the a2o material.


I've taken the liberty of re-posting the list of works on display (list credited to Alex Ong). If you've questions on how to get hold of the items listed, please feel free to ask the librarians or staff on duty at LKCRL.
