8.0 Other Collections

8.1 The Russell P. Shriner Music Library  

The Russell P. Shriner Music Library was established in 1974 as a listening laboratory by donations from  the music department. The collection was enhanced by a donation of 3,000 phonodiscs from Mr.  Russell P. Shriner, and the Central Piedmont library later transferred over 2,000 classical recordings to the music  library. Presently the collection consists of over 7,000 cataloged phonodiscs and compact discs, as well  as printed scores, 150,000 pieces of sheet music, and a minimal number of books.  


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. 


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
