A shelf, a cubby hole?
Would you  post a picture of what you mean - there are many things that might fit that query.

I m guessing that it s a display case, which is like a bulletin board with a glass cover for protection. I could be totally wrong, though.

Do you mean the documents are hung on a wall so that people can read them without taking them down? Like newsletters and posters?
maybe a display board/case?
maybe a bulletin board?
maybe a notice board
Sometimes these have glass in front
 
Do you mean it is a case hung on a wall, that holds document for storage?
maybe a safe for safekeeping of valuabe documents?
maybe a cupboard?
 
Maybe you can post a picture

What is the German word Douglas? We could put it in trusty Google Translate and see what (amusing) English translation it provides
 
I think this post calls for a picture.

A "case" for holding documents wouldn t be a bulletin board, because a case of often enclosed and a bullitin board is out in the open.

Ps - Hey Zora!  Long time - no see!!

Since mouradhope hasn t provided a picture, as Libertybelle suggested at the beginning, we can t be at all sure. Here s the kind of display case I was talking about. As I said, it s essentially a bulletin board, but enclosed.
