Overall, the columns would be: Title, Author, Description, Collection. Simple and usable, with other pages (like Shalidor's Library) to support the more detailed stuff like lorebook, location, existing book etc.

There are over 2200 books, notes and letters in ESO so my advice is to organize this very carefully. A table of 2000+ books isn't very usable. I suggest you look at how Books (Skyrim) is done and follow that. This page needs to be an overview, so it can't be crammed with info that makes it a nightmare to browse.

  1. Books, journals, notes and letters should all be split off into their own pages. A Type column is not needed if this is done.
  2. You need to consider the Collection the book belongs to (Shadowfen Lore, Lore and Culture etc) - not just Shalidor's Library. There is also the Eidetic Memory and each has its own set of collections. Eidetic Memory is massive. A seperate column called "Collection" should be on this table.
  3. Location - This not a good idea. Books (Skyrim) used to do this and everything was a squashed up mess. The location should go on the book page itself.
  4. Existing Book - Not needed as the book page itself will note this, with the collapsable part on the infobox. Same goes for Other.
  5. There are only 82 skill books, so having a extra column for just those is a waste of precious table width. A seperate page for Skill Books is best.

Overall, the columns would be: Title, Author, Description, Collection. Simple and usable, with other pages (like Shalidor's Library) to support the more detailed stuff like lorebook, location, existing book etc. Edited: Link Correction
