Librarian Book Manager  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.7.0
by: calia1120, Flamage
Librarian records every book your character reads in-game and keeps a list of when it was found and whether you have marked it as read, allowing you to continue questing (and not hold up other players) while being confident you won't forget to read anything later.

Any suggestions, bugs or general discussion about the addon can be posted in the comments tab above, in my author portal (button on the right) or in this forum thread.

Features:
- Ability to mark books as read / unread. Books are marked as unread initially so you can feel free to skip reading while questing and know that your book will be easily found later.
- When reading a book, an is shown for books not marked as read (can be disabled in the settings)
- Displays the books in the default book reader interface.
- Imports books you have already read from the Lore Library / Eidetic Memory.
- Records the time each book was first discovered.
- Optionally view books found on your other characters.
- Sorting by unread / read status, time discovered, book title and word count.
- Full text search of all the books in your collection.
- Displays a count of the total number of books found so far and the number that are unread.
- Key binding to open the Librarian window (and a bonus keybind for /reloadUI).
- Optional reminder to /reloadui (and force a save of Librarian data) when a certain number of new books have been discovered, to help prevent loss of data if the client crashes.

How to use:
- Bind a key for Librarian in the Controls, Keybinds settings menu, or type /librarian into the chat window to open Librarian.
- Click a book or press the action button ('E' by default) while hovering over a title to read that book.
- Hover over a title and press the secondary action button ('R' by default) to toggle the unread state of the highlighted book. You can also toggle the unread state of a book while reading it.
- Click on the column headers to sort by that field. Click again to sort in descending order.

SavedVariables warning:
Librarian relies on SavedVariables to store information about the books you have found. If this file is lost or corrupted, that information will be lost. Therefore, it is important to backup your saved variables regularly. This is quite simple:
1 - Go to your SavedVariables folder (on windows, this can be found at MyDocuments\Elder Scrolls Online\live\SavedVariables.
2 - Create a folder called Backup.
3 - Select Librarian.lua and right click, select copy.
4 - Open the Backup folder, and paste the file.

Known issues:
- Books with identical names are not handled properly and will be treated as the same book.

- Added a SavedVariable backup reminder.

1.1.2 2014-6-24
- Fixed a bug with the "Waterlogged Journal" from Craglorn that was caused a user to lose all their data. A more robust fix will be deployed later.

1.1.1 2014-6-14
- Temporarily disabled integration with the LoreLibrary which was causing connection time-outs for some users. This feature will be re-enabled when a fix for it is found.

1.1.0 2014-5-23
- Update API version to 100004. Addon appears to be stable, so I have moved to version 1.1.0.

1.0.18 2014-5-8
- Fixed a bug with upgrading old databases that would result in an error.

1.0.17 2014-5-7

- Updated the bundled version of LibAddonMenu to 1.0r7

1.0.16 2014-5-5

- Fixed a bug with non-english clients that was preventing keybindings from working.
- Added the current version number to the UI.

1.0.15 2014-4-30
- Fixed an error that occurred when viewing a book that was not already in the collection.

- From user feedback, performance looks to have been fixed! Moving back onto features.
- Added an unread book counter

1.0.8 2014-4-24
- Completely revamped the code to use ZO_SortFilterList as the basis of the Librarian book list. Hopefully performance is significantly improved, both for scrolling, and loading / exiting the game.

- Added a setting to specify whether or not to display alerts in chat and/or as a banner-type alert.

1.0.6 2014-4-17

- Big changes on the data storage side. Actual book data is stored in an account-wide variable, and only the time found is stored per-character.

1.0.3 2014-4-15
- Added a settings screen which can be accessed from the standard settings menu.
- Added a time format setting so the user can choose between 12 and 24 hour time. This setting should default to 12 hour for english and 24 hour for other languages, which is the same logic the game itself uses.

I am not currently playing the game and have never experienced this particular issue.

Does the game eventually become responsive again or do you need to quit and restart it?

I'm assuming that you haven't unlocked Eidetic Memory from the Mages Guild quest line yet?

When this happens, you'll be able to import all books your character has read, not just Lore books.

I never stopped using it. Glad it got updated. I found that the version for 1.5 worked fine in 1.6 by manually updating the LibAddonMenu to 2.0r17. I am glad to have an official 1.6 version though

First off I want to say that this addon is golden; ever since Morrowind I've been obsessive about collecting all of the in-game books and creating my own little libraries, so this fills a TES void in ESO for me. I love it.

That said, there are a lot of books in TES games, so the list here gets crowded pretty quickly. I was thinking it would be nice if we could get a nested layout (say, a tree for the "Mastery of" books or texts relating to religion in TES), or at least categories or filters.

Also I know you can head into the SavedVariables file and manually remove entries, but an in-game feature to delete inane entries (little quest-related noted like grocery shopping lists).

Hello there!

I think I speak for many users when saying that it would be great to access all these books outside the game. It would be amazing to create an app and be able to read all these lore books on the smartphone or tablet while laying on the couch/bed, for instance.

While playing, it is difficult to interrupt the action for long enough to truly appreciate the lore. Is there any way to export this outside with the addon?

Thanks in advance!

There is already an option to disable floating text entirely - just look in the settings.

Once again, many thanks for updating!

if i may make a tiny suggestion? (don't shoot). Add a Version: x.x.x in the Librarian.txt, will make it easier comparing our installed one to the one available here. Might be age, but past a few days, i no longer recall when and what last i had. Being able to compare versions would be nice.

Thanks again for everything

Thanks for the heads up! I had no idea, but I just logged in to check and you are spot on. It looks like the fix was retroactive as well. I still have about 50 more books in Librarian on my main character than I do in Eidetic Memory / Shalidor's Library, but its a lot better than the difference of ~600 books before.
