本网站提供关于新加坡华人会馆的信息,不仅包括地缘(乡亲)和血缘(宗亲)会馆的基本信息,如中英文名称、成立年代、会所地址、联络信息、会员人数等,也利用地理信息系统 (Geographic Information Systems, 简称 GIS),提供会馆在新加坡地图中的确实位置,并且通过影像提供会馆位置及其周围环境的画面,让使用者能立体地了解会馆。


一, 可搜索某个方言群会馆在新加坡的分布情况,也可以搜索所有方言群(福建、广东-广府、潮州、客家、海南、三江等)的分布情形,让研究者一目了然,了解方言群和地域分布的关系。

二, 可以新加坡某个地区(如芽笼区)为基准,搜索该地区有哪些方言群会馆;

三, 可以某个时段(如1965年至1985年)为基准,搜索那个时段有哪些会馆成立。

会馆信息中也包括了国大馆藏中所收的各会馆出版品。除此之外,本网站也有多个供研究者参考和使用的索引 (Index), 包括以汉语拼音按所有会馆名称、按方言群和地缘 (locality) 会馆名称、姓氏和血缘 (kinship) 会馆名称、会馆成立年代而编制的索引,以期成为研究者便利的研究工具。


NUS Libraries provides comprehensive information about Chinese Clan Associations in Singapore, based on references collected in 2015. Using Google Maps, these Associations have been mapped out on an interactive interface that allows you to: 

1. Visualise the geographic patterns of dialect clan associations (by locality, i.e. Hokkien, Guangdong-Cantonese, Teochew, Hakka, Hainan, and Sanjiang) or kinship clan associations (by surnames).

2. Explore the distribution of the clan associations by zooming into or out of various geographic scales (e.g. Geylang and Chinatown). 

3. Visualise the establishment of clan associations over time (e.g. from 1965 to 1985) using an interactive slider.

4. Visualise the membership size of each clan association geographically. 

5. Browse relevant literature in NUS Libraries' collection.

6. View indexes of clan associations sorted by kinshiplocality, name (hanyu pinyin) or year established.
