The Millburn-Short Hills Historical Society is pleased to sponsor a digital preservation fundraising event to help patrons safeguard personal memories in photos, film, videos and other media materials.

The historical society partnered with Digital Memory Media (a Division of Innovative Document Imaging LLP), an organization that digitized the original Constitution of the United States, among many other important museum and library collections. Digital Memory Media brings secure, professional preservation services to individuals at an affordable price. In addition, twenty percent (20%) of all proceeds from the program will be donated to the historical society, for the preservation of the museum collection.

Patrons are encouraged to bring their personal collections, such as print photographs, slides and audio-visual material including VHS videos, 8mm, and 16mm film to the event. Digital Memory Media advisors will be on hand to counsel patrons on the best way to digitally preserve their collections.  Once scanned and digitized, patrons will be notified of a date and time to retrieve their material from the Millburn-Short Hills Historical Society museum.
