- Biographical / historical:
The Jewish Orthodoxy Publication Collection was compiled by Duke University Libraries staff during the processing of a large gift of books and serials from the University of Maryland. These materials, all of which relate directly to Orthodox Judaism, were separated from other print materials because of their ephemeral nature; most are small pamphlets, single issues, or small runs of a periodical or newsletter.
