In light of COVID-19 health directive clarifications now provided by the Mecklenburg County Public Health Department -- and adhering to our stringent pandemic safety protocols -- Central Piedmont will move some career and technical education classes back to on-campus, in-person delivery as of January 14. Check your student email for details.
Class sections that began the semester as online or hybrid will continue online until Feb. 2, at which time the college will provide further guidance. Students with questions about the mode of their classes – online or on-campus – should contact their instructors directly and check Blackboard.
Find What You Need
Need library instruction for your students?
Central Piedmont Librarians offer both face-to-face and online instruction.
The Central Piedmont Library is committed to supporting student learning. One way that we fulfill this commitment is by providing library instruction. Integrating library instruction into your class, whether online or in-person, has the potential to greatly improve your students' learning experience.
Requests must be made seven business days in advance of session.
Both online and in-person classes can make use of our embedded librarian program. For more information about the embedded librarian program, please read the Embedded Librarian program policies.
