The Louis Shub Documentation Center at the American Jewish University is a collection of thousands of articles from various
newspapers and periodicals covering a range of subjects. Gathered by Dr. Shub, the former library director of the University
of Judaism, the collection was used by students to research subjects such as Israeli and Jewish figures, Foreign Policy, Global
Jewish Communities, Israel, the Middle East and many other issues and subjects. The importance of this collection is the juxtaposing
of articles from major papers with those of small local papers both covering the same event.
