College Archives

At Central Piedmont Archives, we identify, collect, and preserve archival materials related to the history of the college. Archival materials are available to Central Piedmont faculty, staff, and students, as well as community members. 

Plan Your Visit

Research in person is by appointment only. In addition, you may request research assistance by contacting Archives by phone or email, and our archivist will respond in a timely manner.

  • Transfer Paper Records to the Archives (Central Piedmont Employees)

    To Transfer Non-Digital Records

    • Please transfer non-digital records to Central Piedmont Archives in sturdy boxes.
    • Maintain the order that the records are stored in and keep the papers in their original file folders.
    • You may remove file folders from the hanging folders — if there is a file label with descriptive information on the hanging folder, please transfer that information to the standard file folder.
    • Clearly label the boxes with the name of the transferring office and the box number (for instance, "Department of English, 1 of 3").
    • Before sending the boxes to our office on the second floor of the Hagemeyer Learning Resource Center, please complete a transfer form (Excel document) and email it to archives@cpcc.edu or directly to Erin Allsop at erin.allsop@cpcc.edu.
    • After your transfer form has been received, the archivist will contact you regarding the physical transfer of the records. We may be able to assist with the transfer, or we can schedule a convenient time to meet you. Small transfers may be sent via campus mail.
