Online:Shalidor's Library

The UESPWiki – Your source for The Elder Scrolls since 1995
Jump to: navigation, search

Shalidor's Library is a collection of 297 books that becomes available once the Mages Guild has been joined. Reading one of these books grants reputation points towards your rank in the guild, while reading all books in a collection gives you a large boost in your guild reputation. Some of these books are tied to a specific zone, while others can be found around all Tamriel, usually in 3 to 5 locations, and even in the DLC zones. Every time a book is read, it is added to the library and can be read at any time by accessing the game menu.

Upon completing the Mages Guild quest line, another collection called the Eidetic Memory is unlocked. This library lists all the remaining books, letters and notes not included in Shalidor's Library.
