Here is a link to their sign-in page.
I suggest bookmarking it, because if you reach their main page through googling Singapore Library, you'll likely get lost.
When you register, you'll be told to await a confirmation email. I don't think they actually send them out, so don't wait for one. You ought to be able to sign in immediately using the ID number and password you have selected.
I got registered OK and am able to sign in. However, when I sign in I get this message:
You have limited access to the eResource collection
and when I click on any item in their collection, I get this message:
You are not authorized to view this eResource.
I've waited a couple of hours since I logged in, and no email arrived.
