Literary manuscripts in Singapore

We learned in Girona, from National Archivist Eric Chin, that in Singapore literary archives are principally divided between the National Library (which has the brief to collect literary and other personal manuscript collections) and the National Archives (which has the brief to collect archival collections of national interest, inevitably including some non-literary collections with literary authors represented in them).

Probably this is a national version of literary “split collections” which exists in a good number of countries, especially smaller countries. I would be interested in other examples.
