For some infuriating reason, the Archmage of the COLLEGE of Winterhold doesnt have a set of shelves for books inhis room. Everything in the arcaneum is locked so its not like you actually have any kind of functioning library. Well, thanks to Eldiabs modder's resource (http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/11618), I've fixed that.

This is a minimalist mod that only moves and adds things, no deleting. The bookshelves are where the table with the troll skull and the two chairs used to be, while the table has been moved to the other side ofthe garden, against the wall. See the screenshots. One hanging moss has also been moved over, but still works.

This mod will likely conflict with any mod that significantly alters the Archmage's Quarters. I searched around and, while I found some over-the-top mods that add a forge and a marketplace and mannequins and a nail salon and an Arby's... there were none that JUST added the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ed bookshelves. Subscribe if you're just looking for a proper place to store books, as it should have been -- you're the Archmage for christ sake.

And you know what else ♥♥♥♥es me off? There actually ARE bookshelves there but, instead of storing books, they have a bunch of random useless crap on them. One shelf has 5 human skulls on it. The hell is that for? Am I a serial killer or something? Another shelf has socks or some ♥♥♥♥ on it and another one has a bunch of apples. It's stupid. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥it why are there animal heads over the bed? Am I the archmage or ted ♥♥♥♥ing nugent? And what the ♥♥♥♥ is the deal with all the empty baskets? Am I stockpiling a year's supply of nothing? And what did they place where they COULD have put some book shelves? A troll-skull-discussion nook, of course. Gotta have a place to sit with a friend and discuss a troll skull. Pffffffffffffft. Whatever.

This mod is the bomb diggity (as was the desc.) but I can't activate the bookshelves! I tried in and out of SKSE, but they simply won't work.

Is this a bug, or some fault of my savegame?

I was nearly crying with laughter when I read the description. It really bothered me that the Archmage of the bloody College wouldn't have bookshelves in their room (or that even being an Archmage-Champion-of-Herma-Mora-wizard-alchemist-enchanter-archaeologist-recoverer-of-lost-artefacts-etc, nobody comes and asks me, "Do you need a place to stash all those tomes you're lugging round, Archmage?"). Thank you for this mod!

A very useful mod that ties well with the theme of the room. Excellent.

Good, that is also something that bothered me. Good rant btw. Also rant-worthy is the fact that the Archmages room has no doors! I swear, no door...the first time I got the room to myself a year ago or so, I was soo pissed at that. Basically anyone can intrude on the "headmaster" of the Mages College... ><;

Maybe he's a closet necromancer? I don't know, the skulls over the bed are pretty stupid, I agree. I did find a mod that replaces it with a Winterhold banner. Subscribing, partly because of the awesome rant, and partly because I really didn't want an archmage quarters with a FULL forge either. I just needed bookshelves.

Nice mod, thanks. Just what I wanted.

And if you did the one that gets rid of the animal heads above the bed, I'd subscribe to it in a heartbeat. My archmage has never killed a horker in his f-ing life. Perhaps a lovely shelf with a discussion-worthy troll skull instead? Or a tapestry?

Gonna give this mod a try - LOVE the rant. If I may add to that - how come you can take crap OFF of shelves in Skyrim but you can't put anything else on them! I mean, really, I take a lute off a display case in Hjerim and that case is gonna sit empty until it dissolves into obscurity. Even the wonderful Unlimited Bookshelves mod can't fix that!
