Reference 8 attempts to indicate that the Dawnguard quest line resulted in the recovery of the Elder Scrolls that disappeared from the Imperial Library. This is partially false because Serena and her Elder Scroll were imprisoned sometime at end of the First Era/Start of the 2nd so the scroll she carried was likely never housed in the Imperial Library. Additionally, this reference is misleading because at best only 3 Elder Scrolls are uncovered during Skyrim (1 of which doubles for both the main quest and Dawnguard). Hundreds of scrolls disappeared from the Imperial Library so a "recovery" of three would not constitute the Elder Scrolls being found again.— Unsigned comment by (talk) at 17:59 on 22 January 2014

You're absolutely right. Plus, the player has discretion on what to do with the scrolls, so it can't be considered canon yet that they sold them to Dexion rather than Urag gro-Shub or just keeping them. -- Hargrimm(T) 18:34, 22 January 2014 (GMT)
I agree. I initially tried to remove this part about a year ago, but it was reverted so I had to settle on the "found" wording tweak. While I agree that the scrolls are uncountable in nature and may disappear from one location and appear in another, I felt the word "recovered" was too speculative - Serana's scroll might have disappeared while she was entombed in Dimhollow and found its way to the Imperial Library... then disappeared again and returned to Serana's tomb - but we would be wildly guessing . I didn't consider the excellent point Hargrimm makes about them possibly being sold to either Dexion or Urag. --Jimeee (talk) 12:26, 23 January 2014 (GMT)
