Archives Month

Celebrate Archives Month by exploring the history behind the Central Piedmont Archives, learning basic archival skills, and contributing to projects as a virtual volunteer.

#AskAnArchivist Day

#AskAnArchivist Day takes place on October 11, 2023.

Archivists around the world, including the Archives staff at Central Piedmont Community College, are eager to answer any questions you have about the archives field, like how does one become an archivist? What makes an archive an archive? What's the coolest archival item you've handled?

Have a question for Erin Allsop (College Archivist) and Johnamarie Macias (Archives Assistant)? Send them to or private message us on Instagram (@cpccarchives). Any questions we receive will be answered through our Instagram Stories on October 11!
