mfs a sm1 1Moorestown Friends School (MFS), one of the oldest schools in the nation, engaged FotoBridge in 2007 as its' exclusive provider of photographic digital conversion and archiving services. This multi-year assignment is supporting the renowned institution's preparations for it's 225th anniversary of it founding in the spring of 2010. Events and activities for alumni, parents and all members of the school community will continue through the following school year and culminate at Commencement in June 2011.

Much of the school's rich history, captured in a treasure trove of images on traditional photographic media, was at risk of deterioration or worse. Many of the photographic prints dated back to the late 1800s, some transparencies dated to the inception of the medium.  FotoBridge worked closely with MFS archivists to convert, index and digitally preserve some of the oldest images first, delivering thousands of high-resolution images to coincide with planned preliminary events and alumni activities. A primary objective of this three year program to digitize its significant, priceless collection of photographic negatives, slides and photo prints, is to make this newly digital content available online to alumni and important stakeholder groups.

Along with the vast collection of one-of-a-kind images, MFS selected FotoBridge's "Text Note Archiving" service to capture and index important archive metadata. The partnership between MFS and FotoBridge on this significant and critically important undertaking is expected to deliver well over 200,000 high quality, digitally archived images.
